WebCenter Portal Timeout Warning Message Renews OAM Session (Doc ID 2005857.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

WebCenter Portal Timeout Warning Message Renews the OAM Session.

This is a Custom WebCenter Portal application that has the following entries for timeout warning message and session timeout in web.xml file:

<context-param>
    <param-name>oracle.adf.view.rich.sessionHandling.WARNING_BEFORE_TIMEOUT</param-name>
    <param-value>180</param-value>
</context-param>

<session-config>
    <session-timeout>15</session-timeout>
</session-config>

 

With the above settings this is the expected behavior:

The PopUp warning should display 3 minutes before the session expires. This is at 12 minutes after login.
Once the PopUp is displayed if the user clicks the "OK" button the session will be renewed.
If the user waits 3 or more than 3 minutes to click OK then the session should be terminated despite if the user clicks "OK' on the warning window.

 

However in this case the application is prompting for the idle session 180 seconds before as expected.
When that message is prompted it also updates OAM session time which renews the session for another 15 minutes.
This is wrong. Session should not be renewed when warning message is prompted.



EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

Expect the session to be terminated.
