Using session cookies

By default, the authentication cookie is persistent. You can set the value of the Use Session Cookies preference to true to make the cookie expire when the browser is closed for members of a group. This option can be applied to any group, including Everyone.

Before you begin

You have been assigned a global role with the Security Administration capability.


  1. Go to MANAGE > Groups.
  2. Select a group.
  3. Click the Preferences tab.
  4. Click the Add icon.
  5. In the dialog box, select Use Session Cookies in the list and click OK.
  6. Double-click the Value cell to set the value for the Use Session Cookies preference, which is false by default.

    Change the value between true or false to use session cookies or persistent cookies.

    Once enabled, the authentication cookie will be deleted automatically when any user in the group closes their browser. If the user close his browser and reopen it, he will have to login again.

  7. To remove the Use Session Cookies preference, click the cross icon next to it.
  8. Save for the changes to take effect.
