I'm afraid, there is no way to configure the session timeout in JIRA via administration or a command line option. You have to edit the bundlet web.xml file:

The default session timeout seems to be 30 minutes. Then you would not have to do anything. Maybe you want to deactivate the "remember my login" option, too?

Additionally, if your JIRA authenticates to Crowd, there is a session timeout control in Crowd in the Admin tab, click Session Config. There's a field Session Timeout to enter the Crowd timeout as well which would affect users logged in to JIRA.

Looking for something else?
