You can see the auto-refresh rate in the webclient.properties. Depending on the type of vCenter you have (vCenter Appliance or Windows vCenter). The default is 60 seconds and can be adjusted to 600 seconds.

vCenter Appliance: /etc/vmware/vsphere-client/webclient.properties

Windows vCenter: c:\ProgramData\VMware\vCenterServer\cfg\vsphere-client\webclient.properties

"tasks.refresh.rate = 60"

Additional Information: You must manually refresh the data in the vSphere Web Client to see changes made to objects by other users during your session. For performance reasons, the vSphere Web Client does not continuously refresh data on all objects in the inventory. All changes that you make during your current session are immediately reflected in the client user interface. Changes made by other users or in other sessions are not reflected until you manually refresh the data.
