Description Jeff Fearn 🐞 2020-10-09 13:05:59 UTC
Description of problem:
The session limit introduced in Bug 1854250 is breaking numerous poorly designed applications. We need to turn this off for a release or two and allow these users to fix their broken systems.

If you are one of the people affected you should move to using API keys.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
5.0.4-rh48

How reproducible:
Easy

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a bot
2. do not use api_keys
3. do not take any effort to manage your sessions
4. login every call

Actual results:
You hit the session limit.

Expected results:
You don't hit the limit.

Additional info:
This will be a short reprieve and users are expected to either switch to api_keys or handle sessions properly.

Temporary workaround is to login through the UI, go to preferences, session tab and 'Log out all other sessions'.
