It actually will eventually time out if you don't log out manually, but
it'll take ten days...  This was put in so that if you're using the
dashboard function to view multiple clusters, you wouldn't have to keep
logging in to them if the sessions timed out.

A quick workaround is to edit this file:


You want to change :expire_after to a smaller value (expressed in
seconds), then restart hawk.

Please feel free to file a bug for this (to either set it lower by
default, or break the setting out into a config file, or both) on the
SUSE bugzilla (assuming you're using SLE HA), or the github issue
tracker (https://github.com/ClusterLabs/hawk) if not.
