Limit user login to a single session

Hi Guys,

I'm wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. I'm trying to prevent users from logging into our WebI 4 environment from various locations with the same credentials. Essentially what I want is to limit users to a single active session and if they already are logged in to present an error message telling them that they are logged in already.

Ideally this would be done using enterprise authentication however if there's a method to accomplish this with 3rd party auth then I'd be open to it as well.

Best Regards,

    Hi Mike,

    I think the only way you can possibly do this is to use the SDK. So that the script will check on the CMS when a user is attempting to login to see if there is a valid session in place and then kill one.

    I'll attached the sample tested in XI 3.1 that can be amended to work BI 4.x
