Default Options not being used

I'm creating roles in my new MAG2600 cluster (8.0R4.1 (build 31475)) and after creating about 6 roles happened to notice the Default Options that I had set aren't being pulled or loaded when I create a new Role.

 

For example, the one I noticed, the Session Lifetime times that I had set in Default Options (120, 240, 10) aren't being used in the new roles being created.

The new roles have 10, 60, 5.

 

I guess I could make a Template role and duplicate it and rename, but what's the point of the Default Options if they don't get used?

 

Am I not doing something right or is this just not working?

 

 

 

*edit* it appears that it's just the General/Session Options that's not being used in new Roles.

Re: Default Options not being used

This is normal behavior. I do not believe default options are intended as a template for new roles, but rather they are invoked if you dont specify session options in your newly created roles.

Re: Default Options not being used

Default options are only used when session options are disabled on the role. If they are enabled it will use the session options set on each role itself.

Re: Default Options not being used

hmm..

ok, I guess I can just make a role to use as a template then.

Really annoying to have to change the same settings ot the same values for each role.

Re: Default Options not being used

If you want to use the settings across all (or most roles) then don't select the option on the new roles and the defaults will be used for the user session.

 

You only need to enable the settings on the new role if you want to use settings different from the default.

Re: Default Options not being used

As you have found out & others have hinted at, the session option item is enabled by default on new roles. To have your default apply, you can either uncheck this as you create roles OR you can create a template/default role and make sure it is the first role all users map to and those settings will apply
