SAP idle session time out / Logging off inactive users

Updated May 18, 2018

Logging off the inactive users is not set up by default. Setting up the feature of logging off the users improves the security as unattended terminals do not stay active indefinitely.

To activate automatic logging off, do the following:

  • Go to Profile Maintenance by choosing Tools --> CCMS --> Configuration --> Profile Maintenance or the transaction RZ11.

  • Maintain the parameter rdisp/gui_auto_logout. Enter the required number of seconds of inactivity before the user is logged off automatically.
    To deactivate automatic logoff, delete the parameter from the profile(s) or set the value '0'.

    It would be very nice if the enduser could have some flexibility in changing this timeout parameter. Some users may require larger idle times than others.
