Description:

When browsing the folder structure in Business Objects Infoview, a 'Session Timeout' error is received. How can this be corrected?

Solution:

In the majority of cases when the 'Session Infoview' error is received while using Business Objects (BOXI) Infoview, one of the following two solutions will resolve the issue:

  1. On the Business Objects server via the Central Configuration Manager (CMC), restart the Business Objects Apache Tomcat and Server Intelligent Agent (SIA) services.

  2. Within ServiceDesk, the WEB_URL Web Report option is not set correctly (usually there is either a trailing front-slash character ('/') or a space) so ensure that the WEB_URL option is in the format http://<BOXI Server Hostname>:<BOXI Tomcat Port> (i.e. http://boxi:8080). After making the change, recycle the ServiceDesk service for the change to take effect.

If the out-of-the-box time-out value (20 minutes) is not sufficient, technical document TEC488186 describes a procedure to increase it.
