Is "Keep me logged in" supposed to work?

Wednesday, January 30, 2013
My company uses hosted SpiraTeam, the most recent version as of 1/30/2013.

When logging in I always check the "Keep me logged in" box. But when I try to do anything after maybe 20 minutes of inactivity, Spira asks me to login again. This is not my understanding of what "keep me logged in" means. Can you enlighten me about this feature?

Just checking in, I see that this forum has kept me logged in since yesterday. Is that irony or what?

Our team is experiencing the same issue on our hosted version.  Is this being investigated by Support?

Hi Folks

We released patch 006 last week (which has since been applied to all hosted customers) that fixes the issue. If you download and apply patch 006 (or later) then it will fix the issue.

We are on Patch 007 (with an 'on-premise' installation) but it still happens to us.

Do I need to raise a ticket?

My team is also still experiencing the same issue even after the patch was installed.

As a spira admin, I had to go in and set the timeout to a reasonable limit - even on the hosted solution. In the administrative defaults it's set to 20 minutes. I set it to reflect 8 hours (it seemed reasonable for our company) and I've not heard a complaint since.
