Article Number000184235
EnvironmentProduct: OpenEdge
Version: 11.6.x, 11.7.x, 12.x
OS: All supported Platforms
Other: Progress Application Server for OpenEdge (PASOE)
Question/Problem Description
Changing the option '' in the Advanced Property configuration of the PASOE instance has no effect on the idle session timeout property.
The default value remains 30 minutes (1800 seconds).

Also, the message "WARNING: Manager.setMaxInactiveInterval() is deprecated and calls to this method are ignored. Session timeouts should be configured in web.xml or via Context.setSessionTimeout(int timeoutInMinutes)" appears in the Catalina.<date>.log file
Steps to Reproduce
Clarifying Information
Error Message
Defect/Enhancement NumberDefects PSC00346102, PSC00349574, ADAS-20854
Apache has deprecated the Tomcat API ( setMaxInactiveInterval() ) that allowed setting of this property to change the session timeout.
Defect ADAS-20854 was logged to have the deprecated property removed from starting with OpenEdge 12.2

To adjust the session timeout, use the workaround below.
Modify the webapp's web.xml file, found under: <PASOE instance directory>\webapps\<webapp name>\WEB-INF\web.xml

<PASOE instance directory> is the root directory for the PAS instance, set when the PAS instance was defined
<webapp name> is the name of the webapp to be configured.

In the web.xml file, add the following parameter, with the required timeout in minutes. 
-1 means that the session will never expire.
