Idle Session Settings

Session on the central system is considered as idle when not receiving event reports from the charging infrastructure after a certain configured time of Site or Operator. Operator’s settings have higher priority, if set.

When session is detected as idle, the central system closes/completes it, which means that such session is not being tracked anymore.

Setting nameDescription
Ready session expirationAllowed inactivity in seconds for a ready charging session.
When background job detects a ready session’s inactivity exceeding this time, it finalizes it (rating and closing).
Ongoing session expirationAllowed inactivity in seconds for an ongoing, in-progress charging session.
When background job detects an in-progress session’s inactivity exceeding this time, it finalizes the session (rating and closing).
Session closed verification timeAmount of seconds since the session stop request, after which session is verified to be closed. Used in scope of force stopping and idle sessions stopping.
Limitation: This settings only applies for the Site currently.

Table: Session expiration settings

Pre-configured idle sessions job operation is responsible for detecting idle sessions based on expiration settings of Site and Operator.

Job’s execution interval determines how often the central system checks for the idle sessions.
