Dashboard logs out after X time

Hi Data Studio friends,

 

I am the system administrator at a company. We use Google Data Studio to show on TV screens. For simplicity sake I configured it with my own mailaddress.

We use a chromebit in kiosk mode to show the dashboard, but after some time it logs out and I have to enter my password again to login.

 

A possible workaround is configuring it with a mailadress everybody knows who watches that TV, but it would be perfect if it never logged out. Is there something I can do so it never logs out? I know it's not possible now to share a dashboard publicly, which would probably solve the problem also.

 

It's crucial to have the dashboard running all the time.

Not for the time being.

If you want that data to be visible at all times, consider using other reporting APIs.

Thanks for the quick answer Julien. Do you know what triggers the logout? With my Gmail account I have the feeling it's almost never logged out on it's own.

Hi @Minardus v

 

I also show reports on a TV screen and I haven't experienced this issue - perhaps try another Google account and see if the issue persists?

Hmm thanks Ben, I will try a dedicated account for the dashboards which is not used by any real user. Maybe it's because I logout my own account a lot.
