Multiple Login Logic

I want to allow multiple logins for a user. Can we allow a user to be logged in from multiple locations? I can see there are only options to terminate when a user logs in from another location.

Hi Carly

Thank you for reaching yellowfin support.

Could you please provide your exact requirement here like Do you want to login same user in different locations or same user login at a time in different locations ?

In "yellowfin Multiple Login Logic" settings control what happens if a user in yellowfin tries to login on multiple PCs with the same login account.

Example scenario:

UserName:"Siddhartha.pathi@yellowfin.bi" logs in on 1 PC, then tries to log in on a 2nd PC.

Deny local = Will not allow him to login on the 2nd PC.

Kill Remote = Will log him in on the 2nd PC and log him out of the 1st PC.

Ask = When he tries to log in on the 2nd PC it will ask whether to ?cancel? the login, or kill the

Hi Carly

Yes this is possible if you have a Concurrent User licence. Concurrent licensing defines how many users can be logged in to Yellowfin at one time, using the SAME user role.

I would like to suggest go through the below links. It contains all the information regarding to concurrent user.

Hi Siddhartha,


I dont think that is what I am talking about. I think Concurrent Users is how many users in general. I am talking about the SAME user logged in from two different locations at the same time.

Example:

user1@test.com logs in from a computer in Canada

user1@test.com logs in from a computer in USA

^is that possible?

Thanks,

Hi Carly

Unfortunately, Yellowfin does not provide this option. This may be accomplished through some type of integration or external user management, but only with the help of your implementation expert. This is out of support from yellowfin.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
