Set idle_time value to 15 for a profile

I need to set an idle_time limit for a profile. What is the syntax for doing that? The profile is Profile_X and the resource_name is idle_time and I need to give the field Limit the value of 15 (which is I guess 15 minutes). Could someone help me?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First make sure that you have resource_limits set to true:

sql>  alter system set resouirce_limits=true;

Then you can use resource limits in profiles.  The syntax for setting idle_time for a profile is:

sql>  create profile profile_name limit idle_time 15;

This limits idle_time for that profile to 15 minutes.

To give this to a users:

sql>  alter user username profile profile_name;

Hope that helps..
