Changing the session timeout for the BAS on BDS

We just upgraded our BlackBerry Device Service (BDS) to version 6.2 which is part of the new BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.

Up to version 6.1 you could change the administrative session timeout by editing the same web.xml file as you could on BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5. On BDS 6.2 this setting has moved to a configurable setting in the BlackBerry Administration Service (BAS) console.

Logon to the BAS of your BDS and browse to BlackBerry Solution topology > BlackBerry Domain > Component view  and choose BlackBerry Administration Service.

Click Edit component and configure BlackBerry Administration Service session timeout (minutes) and  BlackBerry Administration Service extended session timeout (minutes) to the desired values. Save the changes and restart the BlackBerry Administration Service(s).
