Can I Edit Idle Timeout for RDS Sessions?

Applies to: Nerdio For Azure (NFA) Professional and Enterprise customers only.

If you are looking to set/edit RDS Session Time Limits, the answer is YES.

Let us first look at the default values. By default, RDS session time limits are set to end after 2 days for a "Disconnected Session" while Active and Idle sessions are set to end never. This can use up resources unnecessarily and in some cases also affect application licensing.

However, you can edit RDS session timeouts by configuring "Group Policy" if you want to apply it across multiple session hosts or on individual session hosts using local security policy. The policies you need to modify are located under Computer (or User) Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Session Time Limits.
