How to prevent automatic log out?

OpenMRS Platform logs out when user is idle for a certain amount of time. Is there a way to prevent that? or to increase the amount of time required for the automatic sign out?

The second Google hit is an OpenMRS JIRA issue that has a comment mentioning how to change the timeout on tomcat 7.


Thank you :slight_smile:
