We have released several changes to LaunchPad, with many more on the way. A lot of these changes would not be possible without the feedback from our users. Keep it coming!

Session Timeouts by Profile

Administrators may now set a session timeout for profiles after a specified period of inactivity. The session timeout can be set between 15 minutes and 24 hours.

This new feature can be accessed by editing any profile within the LaunchPad Management Console. The default for all profiles is 12 hours.

Session Timeout

When the user session is 1 minute from reaching the specified timeout, he or she will receive a notification.

Auto-Logout of Single Sign-On Apps

When a user logs out of LaunchPad, any Single Sign-On applications that he or she has clicked during the LaunchPad session will also be logged out.

Disconnected Session Detection

LaunchPad will now alert you if you have logged out of LaunchPad from another tab/window, or if your session has expired.
