Session timeout longer for backend users than front end users

  • Session timeout longer for backend users than front end users
  • Hi,

    We have a site in Sitefinity 7.0

    We need the backend users to have their session expire after 24hrs. For regular users (not backend users) we need their sessions to expire before this in only 2hrs.

    How can we achieve this?

    In the Security settings it seems to work the other way around. You can only have backend user sessions expire BEFORE regular users via the "BackendUsersSessionTimeout" setting not AFTER.

    Making this value greater than the "AuthCookieTimeout" setting does nothing.

    Cheers!
