Azure AD Session Timeout

Murali V 6 Reputation points


I have setup multiple SAML applications using Azure Active Directory. Is there an option to set session timeout per application ?

I setup a session timeout in the Service Provider application that logged me out from all applications

    Hi @Murali V · Thank you for reaching out.

    This can be done by using Sign-in Frequency option in Conditional Access policy (available with Azure AD Premium P1/P2). The sign-in frequency setting works with SAML applications, as long as they do not drop their own cookies and are redirected back to Azure AD for authentication on regular basis.

    To configure this setting, you need to navigate to Azure Active Directory > Security > Conditional Access > Policies > +New policy

    • Under Cloud apps select desired cloud applications.
    • Under Sessions configure desired Sign-in frequency.
