Session LastUpdated

Hi,

is it really the intended behavior that auto page refreshes (like
HomeRefreshInterval) update the session’s LastUpdated?
I would assume that only “user initiated actions” would update the
session’s LastUpdated.

Example:
A user sets a HomeRefreshInterval of 2 minutes and then go for a 3 week
holiday. As the session’s LastUpdated is updated every 2 minutes, the
user session would never by deleted by sbin/rt-clean-sessions.

The last time I looked into this, the LastUpdated column was wildly
inconsistent depending on database backend.

A user sets a HomeRefreshInterval of 2 minutes and then go for a 3 week
holiday. As the session’s LastUpdated is updated every 2 minutes, the
user session would never by deleted by sbin/rt-clean-sessions.

I believe the example I call out here is that REST doesn’t update the
session after login

Note that LastUpdated is not used properly, as pointed out by that
ticket.

So, there are a number of issues here.
