Logging Off the EBS Portal


To log off, click the person icon (shows your name), then "Sign Out".

Auto Logoff (or Extend Session)

Sessions in the EBS Portal are limited to 30 minutes of inactivity. Inactivity means that no information has been saved during that period (navigating around the portal, while an activity, doesn't save anything an thus the timer keeps counting down).

While on the Portal Landing Page (with the tiles) or in any HR or Payroll application, a warning will pop up at 25 minutes. This allows you to either extend your session for another 30 minutes, or log off immediately.
