Session Profiles

Aug 31, 2016
To customize your user sessions, you first create a session profile. The session profile allows you to override global settings for any of the session parameters.
Note: The terms “session profile” and “session action” mean the same thing.

To create a session profile by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type the following commands to create a session profile and verify the configuration:
  • add tm sessionAction <name> [-sessTimeout <mins>] [-defaultAuthorizationAction ( ALLOW | DENY )] [-SSO ( ON | OFF )] [-ssoCredential ( PRIMARY | SECONDARY )] [-ssoDomain <string>] [-httpOnlyCookie ( YES | NO )] [-persistentCookie ( ENABLED | DISABLED )] [-persistentCookieValidity <minutes>]
  • show tm sessionAction <name>

Example

> add tm sessionAction session-profile -sessTimeout 30 -defaultAuthorization ALLOW 
 Done 
> show tm sessionAction session-profile 
1)      Name: session-profile 
        Authorization action : ALLOW 
        Session timeout: 30 minutes 
 Done

To modify a session profile by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type the following commands to modify a session profile and verify the configuration:
  • set tm sessionAction <name> [-sessTimeout <mins>] [-defaultAuthorizationAction ( ALLOW | DENY )] [-SSO ( ON | OFF )] [-ssoCredential ( PRIMARY | SECONDARY )] [-ssoDomain <string>] [-httpOnlyCookie ( YES | NO )] [-persistentCookie ( ENABLED | DISABLED )] [-persistentCookieValidity <minutes>]
  • show tm sessionAction

Example

 
> set tm sessionAction session-profile -sessTimeout 30 -defaultAuthorization ALLOW 
 Done 
> show tm sessionAction session-profile 
1)      Name: session-profile 
        Authorization action : ALLOW 
        Session timeout: 30 minutes 
 Done

To remove a session profile by using the command line interface
