Security enhancement in GUI: would it be possible to add GUI session timeout parameter which would lock session or log off user ?

this request came from security team/audit, they believe it would improve product security

How will this idea be used?

Users working in Connect Direct GUI ( C:D for Windows Client) should be automatically logged off after some time of inactivity or session should be locked so unauthorized user can't access it

    Hello,

    Just today I got answer from my colleagues working with Connect Direct.
    They have tested the suggested parameter tcp.api.inactivity.timeout but it didn't work.
    The GUI "C:D-Requester" stays connected with C:D-Server after the defined time.
    Perhaps there is something else that needs to be setup or considered?

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with us. It has been some time since we discussed this without a response. Because of that I suspect that the api.inactivity timeout likely resolved the issue that you were seeing. I'll go ahead and close this request out since the functionality is available, but please don't hesitate to open a new request with us if you have other ideas that we should consider.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed this request thoroughly with my team and we believe that the functionality you seek may already be available. Have you explored the tcp.api.inactivity.timeout configuration setting yet? If not I might suggest looking into it as it will likely kill an CPI session that has gone unused for a configurable period of time to meet your concerns. Please do take a look at this and let me know if it will meet your needs.


    Sincerely,
