By default, to keep your environment secure, vRealize Log Insight Web sessions expire in 30 minutes. You can increase or decrease the timeout duration.

Note: The change in the timeout period is applicable only for newly created sessions.


Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Log Insight web user interface as a Super Admin user, or a user associated with a role that has the relevant permissions. See Create and Modify Roles for more information. The URL format of the web user interface is https://log-insight-host, where log-insight-host is the IP address or host name of the vRealize Log Insight virtual appliance.
