Nextcloud 11.0.3 user_saml and desktop client


We installed a fresh Nextcloud 11.0.3 with user_saml backend authenticating vs our IdP (openAM).
We run into a weird situation, where laptop users must reauthenticate every day. Some users are not affected, but they run the client on desktops that are never shutdown or put to sleep.
So our questions are :

  • How does the client keep the session authenticated, and where can we tune it (apache or nextcloud config) ?
  • Is it possible to use app passwords for the desktop client as we do for the mobile app which does not support saml and works very well ?
