Is there an inactivity or session timeout with Shibboleth?

Shibboleth allows you to control the time elapsed before sessions with your applications expire. A timeout based on inactivity with your applications can also be enforced. However, this is distinct from the lifetime of the overall session that enables single sign-on, and in most cases using a local timeout that is shorter than the overall period is not useful. The IdP session time out is 600 minutes.
