How to change vRealize Automation 8 session timeout to make your users happier.

vRealize Automation 8.5 Release Notes mentions an IaaS API addition that allows us to configure user session timeout via

After acquiring the access token send the desired timeout value via the REST API, specifying the new API version:

1curl -k -s -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Bearer $access_token" \
2https://vra8.corp.local/iaas/api/configuration-properties?apiVersion=2021-07-15 -X PATCH \
3-d '{"key":"SESSION_TIMEOUT_DURATION_MINUTES", "value":"480"}'

The output shows the property, 8 hours should do 😉


Please note the change only applies to Service Broker and Cloud Assembly timeouts, but Orchestrator will still timeout after the hard-coded time.
