Outlook Web App logon page takes longer time than expected to time out in an Exchange Server 2013 environment

Symptoms

When you set the values of the PrivateTimeout and PublicTimeout parameters to specify how long you are inactive from Outlook Web App, the time-out session does not end immediately in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 environment .

Cause

This issue occurs because the LiveIdAuthentication module considers the ping request as a user activity and it breaks the time-out of the activity. Then, the time to live (TTL) time stamp refreshes the session.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, install Cumulative Update 9 for Exchange Server 2013.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
