Adjusting The Session Timeout for Okta

Hello,

There used to be an area under Security / General where the Okta Portal Session time could be configured.  That does not appear to be there anymore?  Is there a new location to adjust this time?  Also, what is the default portal session time for Okta?

Thanks,
Wayne

Great, thank you both.  By chance, do you know what Okta sets the default too?

Hi Lee
It's under Security > Authentication > Sign on, and it's called Session Lifetime.

See https://help.okta.com/en/prev/Content/Topics/Security/Security_Policies.htm?cshid=Security_Policies for more details.

Does not look like it is available for everyone. Is it an Early Access feature?
