Error Message :

From the Java UserInterface (UI), if single logon is enabled as the authorization method for the Automation Engine, there is a possibility to bypass the security mechanism.

This allows a user that is not the same as the operating system user to logon without the need to enter the password.

Cause type:
Root Cause: After starting the UI with -S (single logon), access to any client/user was possible without password.
