You will remain logged into Guacamole until:

(A) You explicitly log out of Guacamole by clicking "Logout" within the menu
or (B) Your session expires due to inactivity (no connections open, not
otherwise actively using Guacamole)

By default, session expiration occurs after one hour of inactivity. This
can be changed using the "api-session-timeout" property:
