- No, I did not access elasticsearch directly via browser.
- I checked the network tab as well. There are no requests in the background - I only see an entry in the network tab there when I click something on the UI.
These were my findings:
i. On the kibana UI, If i redirect between these static pages like Management, Visualization, Home pg, Dashboards, after keeping the browser inactive for the specified ttl time I am able to get the login pop-up as the session has expired and user needs to re-login.
ii. But, with the same configurations, when I stay inactive on Dev Tools pg, it does not prompt for re-login after ttl time.
Also, if I remain inactive on some static page like Managementand frrom there, if i redirect to Dev Tools pg, it doesnt prompt for re-login and lets me run queries. It then extends the session also.
Is this an expected behaviour with Dev Tools page? There is a cursor blinking on this page all the time. Could this be a reason why this session keeps extending on this page?
If this is the case, I suspect the same will happen on Discover tab as well if I enable auto-fresh.
