Last updated on SEPTEMBER 08, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 5.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The Secure Global Desktop (SGD) Administrator may find that the deployment requirements of their site require that a user profile may have the need to manage multiple, simultaneous Webtop sessions. In a standard SGD configuration, the user will find that authenticating to a second client will cause any existing Webtop session to log-out, automatically.
This is all built upon the concept of each user identity as being unique.
That said, it is also conceivable that SGD may be deployed in an environment where there is value in having a shared user identity. This model of is often related to anonymous/guest accounts (such as one might find in an Informational kiosk), or where a tightly-controlled, managed secure user (Such as a POS) is needed.
This non-standard functionality may be enabled by configuring the "Login Multiple" attribute for the corresponding User Profile.
