After moving to Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c, one of the annoyances I soon discovered was this message “The page has expired. Click OK to continue”.
When you’re not actively using the console, it doesn’t take long before the message appears, which is especially annoying when you have the performance monitoring pages running in the background!
According to Oracle it’s a new security feature within the EM12c console:
To prevent unauthorized access to the Cloud Control console, Enterprise Manager will automatically log you out of the Cloud Control console when there is no activity for a predefined period of time. For example, if you leave your browser open and leave your office, this default behavior prevents unauthorized users from using your Enterprise Manager administrator account.
…but with today’s browser behavior all that really happens is the page reloads after you click OK anyway!
So, here’s how you disable it:
export OMS_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/middleware/oms12c/oms cd $OMS_HOME/bin
Disable the feature altogether with ‘-1’ value (it’s null by default), or enter another value (minutes) if for some reason you want to increase it:
./emctl set property -name oracle.sysman.eml.maxInactiveTime -value -1 -sysman_pwd sysman_password
Restart your OMS(es) to reflect the changes:
./emctl stop oms ./emctl start oms
