Time setting for stash to automatically log you out and force you to login again?

We recently upgraded Stash from 2.7.2 to 2.7.6. We use LDAP (Active Directory) for authentication.

It seems like I rarely (once per week) had to login again to stash to perform admin (project and global) tasks.

Other users and myself, have noticed that we have to re-login more often.

Is there an auto-logout setting?

Does stash ever "end" a users session?

Thank you.

Hello John,

you can setup the session timeout at your convenience just editing web.xml file. By default it is 30 minutes.

Take a look here for more information https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/STASHKB/How+do+I+change+the+default+session+timeout

Hope this helps,


Thank you Fabio for the information. I could not find that by searching the Stash documentation.

I adjusted the value to 1440 (24 hours) and restarted.

I have not had an issue, although I am active in Stash, almost everyday, but not every 30 minutes.

Thank you again and cheers!
