Why the idle-timeout parameter configured in the user interface view does not take effect

The idle-timeout parameter specifies how long the system waits to disconnect an online user if the user does not perform any operation. If a user does not perform any operation in a specified period, the system disconnects the user to release resources.
Set the idle-timeout parameter for the users who go online through AAA local authentication in either of the following ways:

Run the local-user user-name idle-timeout minutes [ seconds ] command in the AAA view.
Run the idle-timeout minutes [ seconds ] command in the user interface view.

By default, a user is disconnected if the user does not perform any operation within 10 minutes.
The idle-timeout parameter set in the AAA view has a higher priority than that set in the user interface view.
Therefore, the idle-timeout parameter set in the user interface view does not take effect because the idle-timeout parameter has been set in the AAA view.
