Concurrent session limits

Hello.

Does Okta have a setting for concurrent session limits, as in a way to limit the number concurrent requests for a single user session?
Wils DawsonWils Dawson (Okta, Inc.)
Hi Patrick,

Okta does not currently have a setting for concurrent sessions. Depending on what you are trying to do, however, there may be a different setting or configuration that might work for your needs. Can I ask about your use case?

Thanks,
Wils

Hi Wils,

Is it still the case that Okta SSO does not have a setting for maximum number of allowed concurrent sessions?   I have a requirement to allow a maximum of 1 active session for any username. 

Thanks,

Leo

Hi Leo,

We don't support any concurrent session controls (as far as I know) today. However, I'd recommend reaching out to your Okta contacts to talk through your requirements to see if there's another option for you that is within Okta's existing products.

Thanks,
Wils

Hi Wils,

We have a requirement for a service account that multiple users would use simultaneoulsy to login via Okta and access our application. Just wanted to confirm if there is any concurrent session limit now?

That's right, there's no concurrent limit today.  If and when that is supported, it would be a configurable setting so no worries if you have that kind of use case.
