How to search for session timeout event in Splunk internal logs for an account?
... is there any way to find the entries for session timeout?
I have already tried
index=internal OR index=audit host=* user="*" "*logged*" OR "*timed*" OR *session* OR *logout* OR *login*
only results related to login and user-initiated logouts. Nothing related to session timeouts due to user inactivity.
Basically I am trying to debug an account behavior on Splunk Enterprise... we are having two systems and on both we are using same account to login into Splunk web. As per the below documentation for session timeouts:
due to user inactivity and configurations for splunkweb and splunkd session timeout the account should timeout in 60mins. Now on both systems we are displaying 2 dashboards with autorefresh on
but one dashboard still timesout and the other continues to work without timing out to Splunk login page.
what are you trying to solve here? iirc splunk does not log the
logout action or if you close the browser for example.
Depending if you have configured forwarding your internal logs from the Search Heads to the indexer(s);
index=internal sourcetype=splunkweb_service reason="session-timeout"
yes they are configured but this reason="session-timeout" doesn't seem to be appearing in the list of reasons.
