This week, after the announcement of Ignition Maker Edition, I downloaded the Windows ZIP installer, and unzipped it into two locations, each with a different purpose; one would be full-fleged Ignition, and the other Maker Edition.
Since in my company we are still supporting 7.9, I’ve been doing this ZIP installs for quite some time; having each Gateway registered with its own service name, and configuring all in different ports (HTTP, HTTPS, Metro SSL).
Before this week I was only running 7.9.14, and 8.0.13 on my own PC, but now that I’m running Ignition-8.0.14 and Maker-8.0.14 I am noticing a very odd behavior.
When I log into the Config on Maker-8.0.14 I am logged off from Ignition-8.0.14, and viceversa, but the 7.9.14 remains unaffected. I extended my test and ZIP-installed 8.0.13, and all 8.0.X version appear to be affected when all of them are running on the same PC.
It seems as if sessions were being shared across all 8.0.X Gateways.
I believe this is a bug, because I would not expect this to be intended behavior.
