Nutanix Prism – Change or Disable Logout Timeout Setting

You can now set or disable the timeout for Prism within the GUI with NOS 4.1.3, which is now available via one-click upgrade.

Prism Web Console/Prism Central

You can set a timeout value after which you are automatically logged out of the Prism or Prism Central web console.
