Planning Forms Error: “Because of inactivity, your session has timed out and is no longer Active Click Ok to reload the page.”

When user has multiple planning sessions of the application is opened they encounter the error below:

Because of inactivity, your session has timed out and is no longer Active Click Ok to reload the page.

This is a known behavior.

ADF maintains a fixed set of session tokens on client side and if user launches multiple pop-ups in app, they will run into this error.

This should not cause any functional loss – user can click OK on message pop-up and it should re-load the page.

To get past the error message you can bump up CLIENT_STATE_MAX_TOKENS  modify web.xml within HyperionPlanning.ear
