I have a device which is Smartzone100 and any other APs. After portal authentication is configured, I need to re-authenticate every 10 days. The user session and grace period settings have been adjusted to the maximum value. Is there any way to allow me to authenticate once every 30 days or a longer period of time? There is another question, what is the detailed difference between user session and grace period? can anyone help me with a case, thanks

For your referance, please refer below details to understand session timout vs Grace Period:

Session timeout is how long the client can access the Internet via Hotspot WLAN after login. This setting cannot be disabled.

When client logins via Hotspot, AP gets the session start time from controller and counts session expiration time.

AP will disconnect client and client will be required to login again if session timeout period is reached.

For Example: Client logins to Hotspot at 9AM. Session timeout is 35 minutes.  They will be disconnected at 9:35AM.
The client needs to login again after it reconnects to AP.

Grace Period information: If client disconnects from AP at 9:10AM and reconnects to WLAN after 9:11AM, they need to login again.
They do not need to login again if they reconnect to AP before the end of the (1 minute) Grace Period, or by 9:11AM.
