For those using Pega 7.4 and Pega 8.1.0 with SAML 2.0 authentication, there is a potential for information from one user profile to be copied to that of another.
When multiple users log in using SAML 2.0 authentication at nearly the same time, there is a small possibility that operator record details from one user may be copied to the other. Users will be able to authenticate successfully, however various details on their operator record may be incorrect. This issue was introduced when SAML 2.0 authentication was released with Pega 7.4.
