Increase Roundcube session timeout
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Issue: For some time now, I've been having my Roundcube session time me out and have to login again if I'm not active in my Roundcube webmail tab for, say, five minutes (or perhaps even less than that). Worse still, even though I'm active in the web browser, I still get timed out. It's even worse than that as even when composing a long-ish e-mail, in Roundcube webmail, I still get timed out. So I'm hoping we can increase the session timeout to, say, 24 hours, or, worse case, between 1-3 hours.

Thanks

I've also had some experience with this which is why I went ahead with the PR.

The default setting (and as it was prior to that PR) is 10 minutes @Dmehus

It is now one hour but we can consider 24 hours, but that needs some discussion.

I've updated the above PR to 12 hours, as I don't really see a need to up it all the way to 24 hours.

I'd prefer 24 hours. Most websites using Roundcube webmail, it is set to 24 hours. Thinking of Vivaldi webmail, for example. It's a pretty major webmail provider.

Thanks for your initiative in working on this, @Universal_Omega! :)

I could support 12 hours also. 1 hour would be better than no change, but still too short.

I already set it to 1 hour, which was already deployed, but have the new PR to do 12 hours now. Although I guess I can change the PR back to 24 hours.

I've changed the PR back to 24 hours.

I've changed the PR back to 24 hours.

Cool. Thanks! :)

Can any SRE team member approve this, or does it need an EM?

I don't know. Technically this falls under infrastructure, I just decided to do it because I could, I think paladox said to raise to 24 hours needed some discussion so potentially needs EM approval here.

This is funny because I was also considering opening a task for this since it's quite annoying to have to log in multiple times per day.

On the technical side however, if Paladox said it needed discussion I'd like his opinion before going forward with this.

Hrm, I mean, Paladox isn't opposed, and Reception123 is both an SRE team member and an MWE and seems supportive, so looks like you have the support needed.

Reception123 lowered the priority of this task from Normal to Low.Jun 6 2022, 12:03

I don't see Paladox not being opposed, so until we have an answer from him I'd say we should wait.

Lowering priority since this only affects SRE members and has always been set this way.
