Add Timeout value to OKTA SSO profile

Add Timeout value to OKTA SSO profile

Nodegrid has default timeout value for all sessions in System::Preferences Session Idle Timeout option. Although, there is a way one can set custom timeout value for service like OKTA.

OKTA is a customizable and secure solution to add authentication and authorization services to your application. While in Nodegrid
there is no way to add timeout value for single user, one can add the timeout value on group level.

Just add the users to specific Group and go to Security::Authorization: :<group>::Profile in WebUI.
Enable Custom Session Timeout option and add the timeout value in seconds. Click Save to save the settings.
This will override the global timeout settings and provides more granular control.

Note: Make sure the individual users are part of the correct group.
