Oracle Access Manager (OAM) Idle Session times out at 15 minutes unexpectedly, despite that parameter is set to larger than default 15 minutes.

If setting "TRACE:16" or higher level to log name "oracle.oam.engine.session", the following message appears into the OAM diagnostic log when the issue happens. "timeoutInterval:900" means that OAM is recognizing 900 seconds (15 minutes) as the idle session timeout.



The issue happens in the following conditions:
- OAM is configured as High Availability (Clustered) Topology.
- OAM Idle Session Timeout is changed to larger than default 15 minutes:
OAM Console > Configuration > Settings > Common Settings > Idle Timeout (minutes)
