Two-Factor Authentication problem w/ Geodatabase Connections in ArcPro

Discussion created by fimpe0011 on Oct 6, 2017

We are using a two-factor authentication technology called DUO (The Trusted Access Company: Duo Security  ) for connections to our Enterprise Geodatabase (Oracle). Because ArcGIS Pro is a multi-threaded application it creates very many database connections when you use it. For me this means that my DUO app on my phone asks me to  verify my identity once for every new database connection. It is basically unusable due to this. I spend more time authenticating than actually using the software.


What do other folks who are required to use mutli-factor database authentication do? Do you have any suggestions for what we could do so our users don't have to authenticate 6+ times for doing simple tasks in ArcPro?
