[resolved] User switching and the Automatic Sign Out For Inactivity plugin (3 posts)

    Hi thanks for the great plugin, I was just testing it with the Automatic Sign Out For Inactivity plugin active and it did not switch users- just logged out- but it works fine with it disabled. Just thought I'd ask why this is- probably something to do with log in "sessions" I guess?

    This is to be expected. When you switch to another user your logged in state is exactly the same as it would be had you manually signed in using the username and password of the user you switched to. Therefore if another plugin signs you out, then you get signed out.
