Disconnected users do not automatically re-connect
Operating system version
Description of the issue
Disconnected users do not automatically re-connect to a data source.
Steps to reproduce the problem
Context is data/interface separation.
2 files hosted on the server.
Data file is ONLY a data repository. All used layouts and scripts are in interface file.
Security policy is that all users log in data file with the default account (file options).
We set up the server to disconnect users after 1h idle time, assuming that scripts attempting to write to data file would reconnect the user to the file, like it does on first attempt.
But that is not true. The file is completely closed until the users close their sessions and start a new one.
Users should be reconnected automatically, using the same authentication method and rules than on first open.
file is closed, causing errors 18 and 200.
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
it depends (still didn't find why one was thrown or the other)
- Unkown Error 18
- Your privilege access... (200)
- perform a simple script in the data file from time to time to keep the connection active. Poor.
- increase the disconnection delay (against best practices)
