Known Issues

Browser Session Expiration not respected

User experience: End users are unexpectedly redirected to custom URL/URI configured in Settings > Behaviors : no session/session expired when Idle or Maximum session limits are reached but Browser Session Expiration is enabled and the browser session has not expired.

Issue: Access Gateway is not respecting Browser Session Expiration enabled but rather acting on Idle and Maximum session timeouts while browser is still open.

Work around: Before enabling Browser Session Expiration, set idle and max session to something larger then expected browser session timeout. Save the changed setting. Reopen the application, and then set Browser Session Expiration enabled, save again.
For example, if an 8 hr browser session expected timeout, set idle >= 9h and Maximum session timeout 0 (doesn't expire). Then enable browser session expiration.
