Session timeout event handler

Avatar

Level 1

Hello

I am using AEM 6.2 and have implemented AuthenticationHandler interface and extended DefaultAuthenticationFeedbackHandler to handle the authentication.

This is working nicely and now I want to enable the browser to detect when the session times out so that I can warn the user and then show the appropriate message/screen.

Is this possible? How can I do this? Any example/pointers will be very much appreciated.

Regards

John

An inactivity based timeout has to be implemented using custom js code.

A timer can be started on the load of page, and the same should be reset on "mousemove click keydown" events (or as per requirement).

If there is no user activity for a fixed amount of time, then js code can set window.location.href = "/system/sling/logout" and also perform any cleaning up activity, like cookies, browser memory etc.

To detect browser activity - you should be able to do it like a non-AEM solution.
