Extend a Session Up to 5 Days

While a session is active, you can change its end date and time to extend the session duration. A session can be active up to a total of 5 consecutive days if the host data center has sufficient resources to support it.

For details about session extension policies and session extensions longer than 5 days, refer to Scheduling Extended Sessions.

To extend an active session:

  1. In dCloud, select My Dashboard > My Sessions.
  2. Find the active session you want to extend and click Extend.
