[SOLVED]Disabling concurrent access to Dashboard
How can i disable concurrent access to dashboards, when multiple users are logged on? Say for example, there are 5 users, only one user should be able to access the dashboard at a time.

bid-config.xml has a parm called "allowOnlyOneUserWithSameId". When that is TRUE, when FRED logs on to MRE, if FRED is seen to be logged on elsewhere, you will be prompted to kill the other session. The idea being that each user should have their own userid and the only reason you should hit this is because Fred left his office and he is trying to log on from some other location.

Thanks a lot Brian.

I have changed the allowOnlyOneUserWithSameId to true in bid_config.xml, but still it allows two user with same ID to login concurrently.

Is there any more work around?

Thank you

Did you Clear Cache in your WebFOCUS Client? sometimes you'll have to do that for new settings to be "refreshed".

I cleared the cache and it works in the following way.

user1 logs in to the dashboard and later user2 logs in with the same ID. What it does is, it kills the user1 account.

But my case is different. It should not allow the user2 to log in since user1 has already logged in.


Is there any way in achieving this?

Thanks in advance.

I can't even get it to kill user1 who logged on first let alone say that user1 is already logged on. I have cleared cache and tomcat cache etc. ,restarted all services and still nothing.

I have solved my issue. The steps I used as described above were for the Dashboard and not for the Portal.
The correct setting for the Portal can be found in WebFOCUS Administration Console under Configuration, Account Policies.
It is called "IBI_Multiple_Logins_Per_User" which specifies whether the same user can have multiple simultaneous sign-in sessions. The default value is True.
If you set to "False" the user will not be able to login the second time with the same userid.
