User Sessions

A user session could be defined as the requests that a single client makes to a server in the course of a visit to an application. The user session begins when he or she makes the first request and ends (theoretically) when he or she logs out of the application or when he or she closes the browser. If a user leaves the application to surf to another web site, the session has not actually ended, but it can extend until the session-identifying variables have timed out.

Session variable timeouts are set in the ColdFusion Administrator to default to 20 minutes. This means that after 20 minutes of inactivity, the user session ends. The default timeout can be overridden by creating a timeout for the session in the CFAPPLICATION tag of the Application.cfm template of the application.
