I am using an external authentication system. If I don’t see a cookie, I redirect to another site, which sends them back after. When I do see the cookie, I connect to a Java process running on a local socket to decrypt the cookie and get the userid and timeout. Did that in the SiteController file. The UserIdentity only checks to see if the user is in the database. If they are not in the user table, they get an unauthorized view. All this works great.
The issue is I want to have the php session timeout the same time their authentication cookie timeout. I have seen the option for setting a global value for everyone. But I need to set it for each specific person at login time based on the timeout from the cookie. I have tried searching for this information and couldn’t find anything.
Thanks for any help.
