User Account Caching

I'm using LDAPS authentication, Web Gateway 9.2.18, but can't stop user accounts using cached details for logon. There's no option in the Accounts section for the caching, so looking in the Policy \ Settings \ Authentication \ User Database section. Even when this "Use Authentication cache" option is deselected. I see entities in the debug\mwg-core_auth.debug.log file stating "User entry stored in user cache". Is there a method to ensure the external user database is checked at each logon. Thanks for any thoughts.

Re: User Account Caching

In the configuration for the LDAP connection itself is a setting called "Authentication Cache Entry TTL" which governs how long a response is cached by the proxy.  I believe the default is 15 minutes but if you set it to 0 it should no longer cache the authentication response.
