We would like to assign role-based timeouts for users for Splunk.
There are a few admin AND non-admin users for whom, we would not like the session to expire by itself.
Are role based or rather, user-specific timeouts possible ?
If not, is there a way to "abolish" timeouts for all users everywhere ?
Based on the research I have done, I believe that it is possible (by setting the uiinactivitytimeout to 1, see below)
Do you all agree with this observation ?
Based on that answer, I think you are looking for a value for uiinactivitytimeout of less than 1.
From the docs: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0/admin/Configureusertimeouts
If uiinactivitytimeout is set to less than 1, there's no timeout -- the session will stay alive while the browser is open.
