Symptoms

You can see the exceeding sessions after the "Idle Timeout(minutes)" is reached.

Step by step for reproduction.

1.In Common Settings on Oracle Access Manager (OAM) Console, the following is set at each setting.

  Session Lifetime (minutes)=480(default value)
  Idle Timeout (minutes)=2
  Maximum Number of Sessions per User=2

2.Invoke a browser and access a resource.

3.Log in via OAM authentication as "UserA".
  This is first session.

4.In another machine invoke a browser and access the resource.

5.Log in via OAM authentication as "UserA".
  This is a second session and it indicates the session limit is reached.

6.In other machine, try accessing and logging into the resource as "userA".
  You will encounter the following message on your browser.
 
  =========================================================================
  The user has already reached the maximum allowed number of sessions.
   Please close one of the existing sessions before trying to login again.
  =========================================================================

  "Maximum Number of Sessions per User" works fine.

7.After two minutes, try accessing and logging in to the resource again from the machine of the step3 as "UserA".
  It will be successful to access the resource.

8.Refresh the browsers of the first and second sessions, the browsers show the login page for re-authentication.
  After logging in, you will be able to access the resource on the first and second sessions.
  At that time you can see three sessions of "userA" from Session Management.
