Does anyone have any idea why this keeps occuring? It happens to me about every 10 minutes. The session timeout is set to 60 minutes. We use SAML with Okta for authentication. I asked the Okta personnel and they said they have a 2 hour time out session.
I have a similar issue to this, the exact same behavior as above for a Centrify SAML authenticated Splunk instance, however it happens at 15 minutes on the dot whether you're using the session or not. Non-SAML Splunk Web sessions don't have this issue. If you try to do anything in the window as shown above, like refresh, you get an ugly error from the Centrify Connector:
Of course we've engaged Centrify/Delinea but they aren't convinced it's not a problem on Splunk side. I've verified Splunk is not restarting and there is no timeout or TTL setting I can find that equates to 15 minutes. Also can't find any events concerning the disconnect in internal Splunk logs or ingested Delinea logs.
Unfortunately this behavior makes our users reluctant to rely on the SAML Sessions.
