Decouple Developer Portal Session expiration from OIDC Provider used for login

We use an oidc user registry for login into our developer portal. As this oidc session is only required for a short amount of time (access userinfo endoint of oidc identity provider) the access token of the identity provider is only valid for a short amount of time (15 minutes).

The developer portal user session is terminated every 15 minutes, because API Connect uses the expiration time of the original oidc access token for its own developer portal session.

This should not be the case and the develoepr portal session should be decoupled from the initial oidc session to our identity provider.
