Hi ,

We have followed the URL "" and used the

New-AzureADPolicy -Definition @('{"TokenLifetimePolicy":{"Version":1,"AccessTokenLifetime":"02:00:00","MaxAgeSessionSingleFactor":"02:00:00"}}') -DisplayName "WebPolicyScenario" -IsOrganizationDefault $false -Type "TokenLifetimePolicy"  

to create the session timeout . We are getting the below error.

How can we configure the session timeout for a particular Azure AD Application


New-AzureADPolicy : Error occurred while executing NewPolicy
Code: Request_BadRequest
Message: Configure Token Lifetime for RT/ST (Refresh/Session Token) has been retired on May 30, 2020. New policy cannot be created anymore. Refer for more information

    Hi @Subramanyamk-9132

    Configurable token lifetime feature is now replaced with Conditional Access Session Management as mentioned in the warning at below link:

    You need to create a conditional access policy with the required users and application for which you want to configure these limits. For more details, please refer to above link.
