Not able to prevent multiple concurrent login from the same user in spring security with spring boot



** Here I have edited my code as to see that i’m currently using in memory authentication for this purpose

Here is my Security configuration file, What I want to achieve is for one user to not have concurrent sessions. With this code I can login with same user on multiple tabs. Eventhough the user has an active session Can anyone help me with this.I’m a newbie at Spring security Thanks in Advance**

@Configuration
@EnableGlobalMethodSecurity(prePostEnabled = true)
public class SpringSecurityConfig extends WebSecurityConfigurerAdapter {


    @Autowired
    public void configureGlobalSecurity(AuthenticationManagerBuilder auth) throws Exception {
        auth.inMemoryAuthentication().withUser(username).password(password).roles("OPERATIONAL");
        auth.inMemoryAuthentication().withUser(sysUsername).password(sysPassword).roles("OPERATIONAL");
    }
    
    @Override
    public void configure(WebSecurity web) throws Exception {

Answer

Simple check can help you reach similar question here.

Most likely you didn’t implement/override correct hashCode and equals methods in your logined User class.

You have to do something like this, depend how logically you determine the so-called “same” user:

 public class User implements UserDetails, Serializable {
    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

    // ...

    @Override
    public boolean equals(Object obj) {
        if (obj instanceof User) {
          return username.equals( ((User) obj).getUsername() );
        }
        return false;
    }

    @Override
    public int hashCode() {
        return username != null ? username.hashCode() : 0;
    }
}
