vRA 8.x UI session timeout and web IDE experience

Anyone else having their UI session timeout even while actively working in cloud assembly, service broker or any other component.
Feels like the UI is not poking vIDM for extension of the session token, which I would like/expect.

I'm currently spending too much time logging in. Also having mutliple tabs open makes for a lousy developer experience.

How do you best work efficiently??

Any better option? Use Git integration and code outside the browser?
Would like to have a better Intellisense functionality.

Definitely a problem for us - and totally annoying.

Found another thread whereby you can change this by altering the tomcat web.xml within the containers that may help you:

vRA 8.1 - way to increase session timout limit whe... - VMware Technology Network VMTN

We don't want to do that, and were going to submit a feature request, just haven't gotten to it.

I have it submitted non-officially. Not accepted but understood.
It also must be a bad implementation because I get logged out even though I'm active. There seems to be a lack of doing idle-detection and refreshing the bearer token on a regular basis (when user i active)
