1690449 - InfoViewPLATFORMSVC_COOKIE_USR shows different user account


While logging into InfoView /BI Launch Pad with Single Sign On (Vintela and EP SSO) and running fiddler trace, InfoViewPLATFORMSVC_COOKIE_USR is sometimes current login user and sometimes it is not. This happens when login to the InfoView /BI Launch Pad with no SSO with some other account (Ex. Administrator) and then logout, and then use SSO to login (which would be the current login user). But InfoViewPLATFORMSVC_COOKIE_USR will show the user that logged in previously.

  • Is this an expected behavior to use the session/cookie of another user?
  • Would it impact if two users have different BO security?
