Laravel 5.4 Auth Session Timeout

Posted 2 years ago by Sven0188

Hi Everyone,

I have upped my session timeout value in config\session.php but my user gets logged out still and it does not seem like the timeout value I specified in config\session.php is applied at all.

This is my config\session.php file:

<?php

return [

    /*
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | Default Session Driver
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |
    | This option controls the default session "driver" that will be used on
    | requests. By default, we will use the lightweight native driver but
    | you may specify any of the other wonderful drivers provided here.
    |
    | Supported: "file", "cookie", "database", "apc",
    |            "memcached", "redis", "array"
    |
    */

    'driver' => env('SESSION_DRIVER', 'file'),

    /*
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | Session Lifetime
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |
    | Here you may specify the number of minutes that you wish the session
    | to be allowed to remain idle before it expires. If you want them
    | to immediately expire on the browser closing, set that option.

    | Session Encryption

    |
    | This option allows you to easily specify that all of your session data

    */

    'same_site' => null,

];

I must also mention that I have a Jquery post request that runs on an interval using JS setInterval(). The interval time for this is set to 3500ms. Can this maybe cause any issues as this post request gets called several times until a response. Sometimes it could call this request 50+ times before a response is received.

    function checkFile() {
      clearInterval(checkFileID);

      var url = "{{ route('scan.checkfile.post') }}";
      $.post(url, {"_token": "{{ csrf_token() }}" }, function(response) {
        if (response.success == null) {
          //Still waiting for file the be generated so just continue checking (PLC SLOW maybe :) )
          checkFileID = setInterval("checkFile()", intervalMin);

        }else if (response.success == true) {
          //All good go to scan page
          gotoScanPage();
        }else if(response.success == false) {
          $("div#wait").hide(500);

          modelline.val(response.modelline);
          ordernumber.val(response.ordernumber);
          supplygroup.val(response.supplygroup);
          
          $.each(response.message, function(key, value) {
              var failures = $("div#failures");
              failures.append("<div class='alert alert-danger'><strong>Failure:</strong> " + value);
          });

          $("div#page_header").hide(100);
          $("div#failures_main_div").show(500);
          $("div#form_override").show(500);
        }

      });
    }

Please assist :)
