On : version, Content Server

Given two UCM servers in the same Web domain, but different WebLogic Server (WLS) domains. If there is one browser open with two or more tabs connected to two different sites, if the user switches between the two tabs the user will be forced to log in again.

For example, the user is logged into UCM Server A in tab1, and the user opens another tab and logs into UCM Server B, then switches back to the UCM Server A tab and tries to navigate, the user will be forced to log in again.

It is expected that once the user is logged into to UCM, even if the user logs into a different server on the same web domain within the browser, that the user should not need to log in again during the same session.


1. Open the content server url http://domainname/cs 
2. Login to content server with a valid user.
3. Now in the same browser open a new tab and go to http://domainname/cs2
4. Go back to the tab for http://domainname/cs 
4. Refresh the content server page, and the user will be logged out
