Control session timeout expiration

Overview

This guide provides steps for manually controlling the session timeout expiration of a Matillion ETL instance.

Currently, the default timeout expiration is 180 minutes, but Matillion server administrators can edit this value. For example, your organization may deem shorter timeout expirations (15 or 30) to be best practice procedures.



Controlling session timeout expiration

1. SSH into your Matillion ETL instance.

2. Locate and edit the following file:

/usr/share/emerald/WEB-INF/classes/Emerald.properties

3. Locate (or create if it does not already exist) the variable HTTP_SESSION_TIMEOUT_MINUTES

4. The default value is 180 (minutes). Provide a new value if required.

5. Save and close the file.

6. Finally, restart Tomcat using the following command: sudo service tomcat8 restart
