When the auto lock feature is activated, users are automatically logged off of Security Desk when no activity is detected from the user’s workstation. This prevents intruders from accessing an unattended workstation.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the User management task.
  2. Select a user or user group from the entity browser and click the Advanced tab.
  3. In the Logon settings section, move the slider from Inherit from parent to Override.
  4. Move the Auto lock slider to ON.
  5. Set the amount of time that a workstation needs to be inactive before locking.
    A default value of five minutes is adequate in most cases.

  6. Click Apply.
