Session timeout configuration does not work


In my installations session timeout does not work. By default, timeout is occurring after 5 inactive minutes regardless of configuration in System Settings > Session Timeout.

I have tried this by setting http_timeout to 900, but failed.

Is there anyone to support me!

Thanks in advance.

Hello @rmehta

Regardless of System Seetings > Session Timeout configuration, session is expiring in 300 seconds. I am using following versions.

ERPNext:** v12.10.0 (version-12)
Frappe Framework:** v12.7.3 (version-12)

Kindly advice.


Did you ever find a way around this? session timeouts seem to work for password-based authentication not so much for token-based authentication.

It works in it’s own way, not exactly counted the time-out.


I get a session time out always at 0 a. m. local time. System Seetings > Security > Session Expiry is greater 50 h.
For me it could be more convenient if I have to reenter my password only after Session Expiry-time an not at 0 a. m.
