We are using Kibana 6.5.4 with X-Pack enabled (w/ trial license).
I am trying to change the default session duration according to the documentation but seems like the parameter doesn't get applied and the session still gets expired after the browser close.
This is the relevant configuration from kibana.yaml:
xpack.security.cookieName: "myCookieName" (i changed this just to check if the conf gets loaded)
Looking at the Chrome cookie:
As you can see, the Expires field indicates that the parameter didn't affect the cookies expiration time.
From the dev tools:
Just to be clear, I tried many variations of the above configuration, after each changed I restarted the kibana of course.
Also, I use nginx as a reversed proxy, for debugging purpose I worked only with one kibana though.
