HI automatic session timeout


All HI sessions expire after a specific period of inactivity:

  • For non-federal ServiceNow customers, HI sessions expire after 120 minutes of inactivity
  • For federal ServiceNow customers, HI sessions expire after 15 minutes of inactivity

When a session expires, users are required to log back in to continue.

Warning: Any unsaved work is lost and not recoverable when your session expires.

 

Some examples of activity are:

  • Loading the incident form
  • Any activity that accesses the database, such as updating or saving data
  • Going to the homepage
  • Moving from field-to-field may constitute as activity depending on the field (for example, if you try to view information on a reference field)

 

Unlocking your HI account


If you receive an error message that your account has been locked out, contact your customer administrator to unlock the account. If you do not know who your administrator is, or are unable to contact them, you can unlock your account by resetting your password (see instructions above).

If a HI user does not log into HI for the following number of days, their account is automatically deactivated:

  • Non-federal customers: 90 days
  • Federal customers: 60 days

If your account has been automatically deactivated, contact your customer administrator and ask that your account be activated again.
