Canvas vs TM1 Config Timeout

Hello All

I’m just looking for some clarification re the interaction between the session-timeout statement in the WEB-INF\web.xml file and HTTPSessionTimeoutMinutes in the TM1 config file. Does one file overrule another? Or is the minimum value used?

Is it possible to have different timeouts for different Canvas applications? E.g. if TM1 config file was set at 480, but we want one specific Canvas app to timeout after 30 minutes, could we update the web.xml file for just that application?


Hi @anz.fin.all.mailbox,

Those are two different timeouts. One is for requests on TM1, whereas the other one is for a Canvas application.

As for having timeouts differently for each Canvas application, yes should be able to do that.

Note that you normally need to restart the Canvas server in order for the changes in the web.xml to take effect.
