How do I set up a session timeout?
(I’m asking questions using a translator.)
I’m not storing user information in the users collection, but in a separate collection I’ve created.
If the user does nothing for 10 minutes after logging in, I want to log out automatically.
The session API provided by Meteor seems to be available only to clients.
Is there any other way?
You could use meteor-idle-watcher:
Detects when a user stops interacting with the page for a specified amount of time (for the purpose of disconnecting them).
I hope that helps.
Check out the various answers to the general question of “how to detect idleness.”

When the timer runs out, you can then simply run
I use this to keep a status for my users (e.g ’ User is online’) . You can easily us this for your purpose https://github.com/Konecty/meteor-user-presence
