How to change the timeout of a session

Question

How to change the session timeout?

The session timeout is the period of time that a session can remain idle, without any end-user interaction, before the Platform Server ends the session automatically.

Answer

The OutSystems Platform uses the .NET or J2EE session mechanisms to manage its sessions.You can check more in our help:

http://www.outsystems.com/help/servicestudio/9.0/default.htm#Language_Reference/About_Sessions_in_OutSystems_Platform.htm

As you can see in the help page, this configuration requires a custom configuration in the IIS that is not supported on our cloud environments.

If you need to have extended sessions, you can always use custom callbacks that are called in the beginning of each session and do the logic to do whatever you need to do. To add these callbacks in your logic you can do it like this:
