The Confluence documentation includes a full page on changing the secure session timeout for administrators. Atlassian Answers contains several topics related to this question, although they are for JIRA or older versions of Confluence. I don't understand why the issue of session timeouts for regular users isn't better documented and a session for changing the timeout isn't in the general Confluence configuration, or if it is, why it isn't more obvious.
Thanks, Jonas. You are having the same issue that I am, namely, having to recall the defaults because it isn't so easy to find documentation on them or any configuration to change them. I wish an Atlassian staffer would help us resolve this definitely. In the meantime, I'm going to test the 5 hour timeout. Thanks again.
