Login with different users in each tab

Hi everyone.    Is it possible to configure Mendix project in such that in two different tabs I can login with two different users?  In such way that one tab will not interfere with second tab information.   Any help would be appriciated   Regards, Anahit

No, not with two different browser-tabs. The security is in the session-cookies.
But you have other options to be logged in with two different users at the same time:

- while already logged in via a normal tab, open a private-tab (Ctrl-Shift-p) and log in with another user;

- open another type of browser, FF, IE, Opera, Chrome and log in with another user;

Hm, I now see Wouter beat me to it. Should not have gotten coffee first.


Why would you want to be able to log in with two users? I think there is no practical application for actual users here, correct?


The idea of Mendix is that it is a single page application – one session is linked to one user within a single app. To allow for this, a cookie is stored. Every time you re-open the page, that cookie will be found and you will be automatically logged back in. 


That being said, you can start a private browser tab using the shortcut CTRL+N; the idea of private browser screens is that all tracking mechanisms (including cookies) are much more limited. Hence, I think that should be your solution ;-). Alternatively, I sometimes use FireFox, Chrome and Edge alongside each other – one has my admin user, one user with role A, and the other with role B. Finally, I suggest you use the button on the right to quickly change roles


Hope this helps!
