- On the computer running Tableau Server, type one of the following commands, based on your operating system:
cd "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server\<version>\bin"
cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Tableau\Tableau Server\<version>\bin"
- At the command prompt, run the following commands in order:
tabadmin set wgserver.session.idle_limit <minutes>
Where <minutes> is the number of minutes after which the user session will time out.
- The default setting for an idle user session timeout is 240 minutes.
- Closing the web browser will end the current session regardless of the timeout period, and you will need to sign in again to access Tableau Server.
