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'.

Thanks that helped. Got us in the right direction to find parameter rdisp/plugin_auto_logout to set timeout for http sessions as well.

Hi, We have a different problem...although the parameters are correctly defined the user sessions don't end and are kept alive indefinitely. Does anyone of you had this kind of problem?
Thanks in advance
