[keycloak-user] How to increase session/token timeout for reset action emails?

Some more info: currently we have the ‘Login action timeout’ set to 2 days (48 hours). In the ‘reset action’ emails that are sent to our user we see:

"Your adminstrator has just requested that you update your Our Realm account. Click on the link below to start this process.


This link will expire within 2880 minutes.”

So we assumed that these ‘Account Session’ tokens would remain active for 2 days (=2880 minutes). However this does not seem to be the case.. If I am not mistaken these sessions only live 30 minutes, the same as normal user sessions.

Are we doing something wrong or is this is an issue in Keycloak?

PS: instead of 'normal' sessions we would really want to use offline tokens for the reset action emails so that the reset action tokens are persisted in the database and can survive a server restart.

This seems to result in an ‘Account Session’ for each user. We notice that the timeout for these sessions is too low for our purposes.
