User-sessions with Couchbase Web Console can be timed out, following a specified period of user-inactivity.

Access the Other Settings display, by left-clicking on the Other Settings tab, on the upper, horizontal control-bar:
The Other Settings display contains three panels, which are for Log Redaction, Session Timeout, and Cluster Encryption. The Session Timeout panel appears as follows:
The interactive pane accepts integers, representing minutes of user-inactivity that are allowed to elapse before the user-session times out, and the login screen is displayed. Enter the required number of minutes with the keyboard. Then, left-click on Save, at the lower right of the display, to save the new setting.
Note that 0 seconds, which is the default, specifies that no timeout is applied.
