Id_token expiration

I’ve set the id token expiration to 60 seconds, this is for a standard web app solution. When I close the browser and wait for a few minutes, then navigate back to my site, auth0 automatically logs me in again. Can you tell me if there are any other settings I need to change so that I am prompted to log in again?

Hi @slicc,

Would you please share how did you set the token expiration time.

Yep any screenshots and information about the stack you use will be helpful!


I am using .net core 3.1 backend (regular web app approach from the Auth0 Quickstarts). I set the id_token expiry time in the Application Settings on Auth0 (image below). When I monitor the traffic in the browser I see the redirects sending the browser back to Auth0, and then the subsequent redirect from Auth0 back to my site, even if I close the browser for hours:

This actually seems to be working now.

Weird have you changed something in the meantime? Glad it actually works now!

Not sure really, possibly all browser windows weren’t closed, or maybe a cookie was hanging about for other reasons, not sure.
