Single Sign-On Session Expiration

Posted on 2006-04-28
Last Modified: 2010-04-07
Hi Experts,

Have a situation where we want to use a Single Sign-On protocol for SAP (using SiteMinder) and a web-based applilcation. Our objective is to be able to use links from SAP to open our web-based application without having to sign in everytime we click a link.

To summerize how we envision this working is as follows:

Open up SAP - sign in
Open up Web-Application - sign in (store info)
Close Web-Application
Use SAP to navigate to Web-Application (no sign-in required)
Session for both SAP and Web-Application ends when user logs-off SAP (i.e. Web-Application session should be able to stay alive for X amount of time)

Is this feasible - if so, can you provide specific examples and\or explination as to how it can be done?

Thanks in advance!

    From OSS Note 27320:

    (2) rdisp/gui_auto_logout        
    Parameter for application servers, unit seconds, default 0          
    If the frontend has not sent any data to the application server for "gui_auto_logout" seconds, the frontend closes the user connection and releases the resources.
    A value of 0 means that no users are logged off automatically.

    Set parameter rdisp/gui_auto_logout through RZ10.
