This thread is trageted to discuss the possible ways to restrict duplicate sessions in siebel application.
We have two scenerios.
- Duplicate sessions from single workstation
- Duplicate sessions from multiple workstations
Duplicate sessions from single workstation
Duplicate session from single workstation can be restricted using IE8 feature of tabbed browsing.
- Tabbed browsing in IE8
Tabbed Browsing is not supported with Siebel beyond one active session per IE8 instance. Users can only run siebel in one tab. .User can open multiple web page in different tabs but only one live connection to a Siebel application
If we close an active Siebel session tab without logging out , next time the user open a new session it remains logged in. This is a long-standing feature of Siebel.
To completely disconnect from Siebel either use the "Logout" menu option in Siebel or close the IE8 browser instance.
Duplicate sessions from mutiple workstation
Not a very clean solution; write a script which periodically monitors for duplicate login sessions and then kills/terminates the newest sessions. It will not prevent users having duplicate sessions from multiple workstations, but will discourage them logging on twice (or sharing their account).
Thanks to Pier Paolo Marzo and Peter van Nes for valuable inputs.
Discussion is on. Please share your experience and implementation for restricting user for opening concurrent session in siebel.
