This issue disappeared after I used the auto-signin.


may be your browser. I've experienced the same behaviour a while ago using an older firefox version. After an update it worked just fine. (By that time a got a simultaneous timout on every website I was logged into)

Thanks Christian. It doesn't seem to be my case. I have the same problem on different browers.

Weird thing is, I'm experiencing the SAME problem right now:-) I have several instances in different browsers and at the same time there is a timeout in all instances...

Ditto. I've just asked the same question. Have noticed in past week. Although this question is older than that.


maybe it is a workaround to set the auto-signin.

Nevertheless it is a sessiontimeout (after minutes) even if it is configured in web.xml for 300 minutes.

I have the problem with jira 4.4.3 and various browsers.

Cheers, michael

In web.xml session timeout is set but if the user is Idle only it should time out.

Where can we get that Idle time out set to??
