Talend MDM Web UI

A user session timeout for Talend MDM Web User Interface is set to 30 minutes by default. The business user or data steward will be redirected to the login page of the Web User Interface after a period of 30 minutes of non-activity.

You can always change this session timeout, if required.

To set up a new timeout for users connecting to the Web User Interface, complete the following:

  1. In the Tomcat folder, browse to the file \webapps\talendmdm\WEB-INF\web.xml.

  2. Open the web.xml file in a text editor and search for the following tag:

    <session-config>
        <session-timeout>30</session-timeout>
        <tracking-mode>COOKIE</tracking-mode>
    </session-config>
  3. Change the value of the default session timeout as desired.

  4. Save your modifications.

The new session timeout parameter has been set for users connecting to the Web User Interface.
