Is Global Assignment User ID logins included in the Login Data Report?

Before b2105:

If home user and host GA users are both active, only home user will be recorded in the login report. Unless the user using host GA’s username does the API login, then system will record GA user in login report too.

After b2105:

  • Global assignment user IDs are included in the report only if they are active in the system.
  • When GA is active, no matter who does the login, login report will record GA's user ID;
  • If user using host GA’s username does the API login, then system still record GA user in login report.
  • When GA is inactive, the login report won't record the GA's user ID and will just record the actual login user id.

Why am i seeing duplicate logins generated within seconds of each other?

It is expected that system will count duplicate logins for some users when accessing it. Modules like PMGM, Employee Central and also some applications will authenticate user again after login, once the user accesses these pages. This is also very typical when the user is accessing mobile, since it also generate duplicate logins because there are various login authentication processes in it.

There are some login actions that are related to API calls, and for that we introduced an option to disable API login Audit, which is explained in this KBA: 2780420 - Disable API Login Audit Data. However, there are duplicate login records that will still be appearing even after you enable this option, because these specifically do not use API calls.
