This module provides a site administrator with the ability to set
the system to log users out after a specified time of inactivity.
It is highly customisable and includes "site policies" per role to
set different timeouts for each role. It is also possible to allow
users to set their own personal values.
After a given timeout has passed, users are given a
configurable session-expired prompt. They can reset the timeout,
logout, or ignore it in which case they'll be logged out after
the padding time has elapsed. This is all backed up by a
server side logout if js is disable or bypassed.
This is a port from the Drupal module of the same name, v7.x-4.4,
with some additions to provide the per role and per user
This initial release for Backdrop (1.x-4.4.0) can be installed and
will automatically log-out a user after the prescribed interval.
However, it has not yet been fully tested and it is not passing
all its inbuilt tests. please report any issues you may find.
