How long does JIRA wait to auto-logout due to inactivity?

I've noticed that JIRA will auto-log your account out after an unknown period of inactivity. Does anyone know the length of time? Is there a way to change it?

Hi Christine,

By default, I think the session timeout is configured to 60 minutes. However you can change this by following the procedure on the following link

I haven't try this out, but hope this helps :) cheers

And it is also influenced by the presence of plugins which can result in JIRA never getting timedout due to automatic refresh of data from pages

I went poking around for this session timeout page in the latest version of JIRA and discovered that the time period has apparently increased to 5 hours. It certainly doesn't seem that long in practice....
