CAS/SAML to send activity status to prevent timeout

    At the moment there is no data being sent through the IdP CAS/SAML around activity in Blackboard. Therefore, if a user is signed in using single sign-on they will get timed out when the authenticator is set to timeout. This means that a student could be in the middle of an exam and be logged out even if they're actively answering questions OR a staff member could be in the middle of creating a piece of content and lose it all because they get logged out.


    It would be great if all authentication methods have awareness of activity in Blackboard so this doesn't occur OR there is another solution put in place to prevent any loss of data due to a logout.
