There are two types of authentication timeouts for strongDM users: idle timeouts, which have to do with the idle time of an authenticated user; and session timeouts, which pertain to overall length of authenticated sessions.
The idle timeout will force Users to log out of the Client or Admin UI after a set amount of minutes of inactivity. For example:
- Client will log users out after 20 minutes of idleness.
- Admin UI will log users out after 20 minutes of idleness.
The session timeout will force Users to log out once their session reaches the pre-determined time limit. For example:
- Users must re-authenticate every eight hours.
