Reproducing the Issue

The warning can appear under multiple circumstances

  • Logging in to two different SF instances in the same data center in the same browser.
  • Logging in to same SF instance from multiple tabs in the same browser, using the SF login URL (/login) in each tab.
  • Logging in to a SF instance in one tab, then proxying as another user in the same SF instance from a different tab in same browser.


This is an expected change in the 2H 2022 release.


This is an enhancement introduced in the 2H 2022 release to warn the end user about having multiple active sessions to the same SuccessFactors server (data center) in the same browser, to prevent session intermixing problems that can arise out of such usage pattern.
