I am trying to connect to Salesforce from an external server and I am doing this via the OAuth 2.0 JWT flow to gain authorization into Salesforce.

I construct the JWT token from the external server and hit a connected app within Salesforce. When I post a request with this JWT, I get an access token - which is correct. I am trying to reconstruct another JWT and do another request with this new JWT to Salesforce. I however get the same access token again and not a fresh access token. Salesforce allows multi-session login using the same user name but the OAuth JWT flow doesn't seem to be having a multi-session login access. Could you tell me if I need to pass any additional info like IP and browser setting with the OAuth request.

Do let me know if I can achieve a concurrent multisession (with different session IDs) login using the JWT OAuth flow as this is critical for my solution.

If the same app asks for an access token for the same user, you'll get the existing access token. The only way I know of for you to get a new token is to revoke the existing one.

What is the use case? Why do you need different access tokens?


I am also facing similar kind of issue. OAuth returns same session id on multiple request.

Expecting different access token for each user. Please review the below code and suggest me for any changes to generate different access tokens per user based. I am trying to integrate two different domain applications. We have n number of users for the first application. What is the parameters that can change in claimset to generate user based access token?

Check 'Lock sessions to the IP address from which they originated' in session settings. It worked for me.
