The Microsoft Teams admin center admin portal automatically signs me out after a period of inactivity. I lock my workstation every time I leave it unattended, so this "feature" doesn't provide me with any additional security. The Microsoft 365 admin center doesn't do this. Am I right that there is no way to turn this off?

Hi,

The product team for Teams Admin Center is aware of this now and filed a bug (internal).

Hi @Linus Cansby, have you heard any update about this? 

 

Not only is the Teams admin center still signing me out after a period of inactivity, there is a new twist: if I try and sign back in from the page that is displayed after the automatic sign out, I get an error saying "AADSTS90100: login parameter is empty or not valid."
