Lucee Website Timing Out After 2 Minutes Of Inactivity

After logging into the Website, if a user steps away or does not click on anything on the Website for about 2 minutes or so – they are logged out – and the login screen appears. (On the associated Web server running ColdFusion instead of Lucee, they stay logged in for a very long time.)

Scope is set as:

Session Timeout: 6 Hours
Application Timeout: 20 Days
Client Timeout: 5 Hours

Does anybody have any ideas as to what I should check that could be causing it to timeout so quickly?


Don’t forget to tell us about your stack!

First step is to identify the problem. Have you checked the actual session cookie (assuming you’re using cookies) and verified that the expiration time is being set how you expect it?

There are multiple locations where you can configure timeouts. The admins, your application scope, other places in your code, etc. You will need to check all those locations to find the culprit.
