Set the expiration time for user activation links in activation emails

When a user registers a new account, or requests to reset a password, they receive an email that contain an activation link. By default, that activation link expires after 600 seconds, or ten minutes.

You can configure the expiration time by setting the conf_apigee_apigee.forgotpassword.emaillinkexpiryseconds token in the file.

To set the expiry time:

  1. On the Edge UI node, edit /opt/apigee/customer/application/ If that file does not exist, create it.
  2. Add the following property to the file to set the expiry time in seconds:
  3. Restart the Edge UI:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service edge-ui restart
