python jira client destroy session

I am trying to invalidate the session using jira-python rest client. How can I achieve this feature, is it built in or needs to be implemented?

Do you mean to destroy a session which has been created using the python client? Or to invalidate another person's session? If it is the python client's session, then just log out?

Invalidate any active user's session after 'x' minutes

If JIRA does this automatically, then can you tell me where can the invalidate sesstion timeout value be configured within JIRA?

Thanks Boris, that answers my question. One more thing comes to mind, can I automate a timer from the client side for the session timeout, to call the delete session API from the command line client. The web browser clients can still have the default session timeout for 5 hours.
