Jira continuously logs me out after several minutes and notifies about a possible cross site forgery?

After some time of inactivity, JIRA logs me out. When I log in again, it warns me about a possible cross site request forgery. I use a Mac with OSX 10.11.3, and the most recent version of Safari.

My hunch: I use the iOS tempo app where I am also signed in with a google apps account. I think this might be connected to the issue.

I would suggest to use below settings in your jira-config.properties file. you will not be logged out again. however it has security risks involved. if the file is not present just create it. we need JIRA restart to reflect the changes.

jira.websudo.is.disabled = true

jira.websudo.timeout = 30
