The api.idleSessionExpirySeconds configuration item sets a timeout for sessions that have not actively made API requests.

By default, for historical compatibility, this has been set to null, requiring an opt-in to idle session expiry.

We're moving towards more generally-accepted defaults, and for 6.0 will set this to a (still very permissive) 48 hour expiry for new installs through the default configuration.

The expiry can be changed with:

seq config -k api.idleSessionExpirySeconds -v 172800
seq restart

or cleared entirely with:

seq config -k api.idleSessionExpirySeconds --clear
seq restart

At this point we do not anticipate changing the value for existing installations.
