Change session timeout for BAS

Tired of being logged out from your administration session in your browser?

If you would like to change the default inactivity timeout for your sessions on the BlackBerry Administration Service (BAS) you can do this by modifying a setting in a configuration file.

You just have to edit <.. your installation directory ..> \BAS\jboss\ejb\server\default\deploy\jboss-web.deployer\conf\web.xml.

Just below Default Session Configuration in the web.xml file you can find the relevant lines.

To edit the timeout you change the line with session-timeout to the desired timeout in minutes. Configuring a value of 0 disables the timeout altogether.

Example:

<session-config>
<session-timeout>0</session-timeout>
</session-config>

Restart the BlackBerry Administration service after making the change.
