I believe you are looking for this guide: How to Adjust the Session Timeout for Confluence

To change the default user session timeout (which is 60 minutes) you must edit the file web.xml. For sites using the default Confluence installation, the file is located in <YOUR CONFLUENCE INSTALLATION DIRECTORY>/confluence/WEB-INF/web.xml The element you want to edit in the web.xml file is:

&lt;session-config&gt; &lt;session-timeout&gt;60&lt;/session-timeout&gt; &lt;/session-config&gt;

The value within the session-timeout tag defines the length of time a user's session will exist, in minutes.

After editing the web.xml file you will need to restart Confluence for your change to take effect.
