Configuring Access URL:

Session Expiry Time:


Session Expiry Time is the maximum duration for which a user's ADSelfService Plus session can remain idle. Idle sessions will automatically be terminated after the specified duration.


Configure session expiry time for the users (range: 10 minutes to never expires) by selecting the Session Expiry Time of your choice from the drop-down list. 


Note: Changes take effect only after the ADSelfService Plus server is restarted.


Deny multiple logins for a user:


Enabling Deny Concurrent login prevents users from logging into ADSelfService Plus from multiple client end-points. That is, users will not be able to log into ADSelfService Plus if there is another active session in a browser, or in a mobile app.


Users can login again only after they log out from all the existing sessions, or until their session time expires.


Steps to be followed to deny concurrent logins for a user: 


Attempts to log into ADSelfService Plus web console when there is another active session will result in the following error message.




Changing the session status of the users:


When Deny Concurrent Login option is enabled, if a user closes a browser which has an active ADSelfService Plus session, the user will not be able login to his/her portal until the idle session time expires. To avoid such inconveniences, you can configure ADSelfService Plus to reset the session status of the user. Follow the below steps to change user login status.
