SAP idle session time out / Logging off inactive users

Logging off the inactive users is not set up by default. Setting up the feature of logging off the users improves the security as unattended terminals do not stay active indefinitely.
To activate automatic logging off, do the following:
  • Go to Profile Maintenance by choosing Tools --> CCMS --> Configuration  --> Profile Maintenance or the transaction RZ11.
  • Maintain the parameter rdisp/gui_auto_logout. Enter the required number of seconds of inactivity before the user is logged off automatically.
To deactivate automatic logoff, delete the parameter from the profile(s) or set the value '0'.

Do we need to really log-out and log-in again to make authorization changes effective?

Whenever any changes were made to the user authorizations, normally it is required to log-out and log-in again to make these changes effective.

Here is an alternative:

Execute the report RSUSR405 in SE38. This would refresh all user-related buffers and changes to the authorizations are made effective immediately..
