Summary :

As companies decommission software applications, there is not a need to have the decommissioned software session id included in the user's profile for Solve: Session Management. Each user could delete the session ID from their application list but it is more efficient to have the administrator perform the task globally.

 

 

Instruction :

For the purpose of this document, we will use XYZ1 as a session ID. To globally delete session XYZ1 from all profiles that have this defined, the administrator needs to log in to SOLVE: Session Management. Then invoke the MSDM shortcut by entering /MSDM. Select option G - Global Session Maintenance. Then select D - Delete Session Definitions. You will receive the following screen:

In the Userid ID field, specify *.

In the Session ID field, specify XYZ1 (this example only).

Press F6 to action.

This will start a search of the User IDs that have this session defined.

 

Once the count is complete, the following screen will appear.
