Make it possible to open more independent SSH sessions to the same target with the same login

Status : Delivered
over 2 years ago

Hello OO development team and members of OO community,

currently the sessionId in SSH 2.0 operations in Base CP is a string that contains host, port and login (e.g. sshSession:16.54.146.185-22-root). Thus the sessionId  is not really unique and it is not possible to create two or more independent SSH sessions to the same target device with the same login.

Please enhance the SSH 2.0 operations in Base CP to make it possible to open two or more independent SSH sessions to the same target devices with the same login. This enhancement would really help for many different usecases, especially for such use cases where:

  • it's required to connect to large number of target devices
  • connection from RAS to target device is not direct but via a jump server (RAS -> JUMP -> TARGET)
  • to decreate the flow execution time it' necessary to make several connection at the same time (using Multi Instance step)

Kind regards

Jan
