Session/Authentication Timeout RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am attempting to configure my sharepoint site to allow users to have a longer session without having to re-login. I have set the session time out in IIS and the web.config to 600 minutes, I have set the timeout property on the forms element in the web.config to 600 minutes and I have added the 'slidingExpiration="true"' to this element as well. In Sharepoint central admin I have set the session timeout to 600 minutes on the 'Central Administration > Application Management > Configure Session State ' page and on the 'Central Administration > Application Management > Web Application General Settings' page I have set the 'Web page Security Validation' to 600 minutes as well.

    After 30 minutes of inactivity the user will be get redirected to the login page. I have gone through the application and can't find anything else that looks like it could cause this behaviour. There isn't any custom development.

    Any help would be appriciated.
