What Grafana version are you using?
What OS are you running grafana on?
What did you do?
grafana.ini, made the following changes, saved, closed, restarted grafana-server:
session_life_time = 60
login_remember_days = 0
What was the expected result?
User’s open browser session would timeout and require re-login after 1 min
What happened instead?
Nothing. Panels in the dashboard kept refreshing successfully after several minutes, even after using grafana refresh button. Tried using the browser refresh button, that reloaded the page w/out asking for re-authentication.
The only thing that did work to end the session, was to close the browser entirely (all tabs and windows) and reopen them.
Browser make and version?
- Chrome Version 58.0.3029.81 (64-bit) (regular and incognito)
- Safari Version 10.1 (12603.1.30.0.34)
I’ve seen posts related to the same issue for different versions, but none of them offered different behavior:
I’d like to be able to configure grafana sessions in an open browser to expire after x time period (8hrs/24hrs). Anyone have suggestions or know if this is a legit bug that should be logged in the project?
