2 Users on one workstations with their own PVM logins. How do we setup 2FA for each user?

We have 2 users that share the same workstation. That workstation has PVM installed with an Azure SQL DB. Each user has their own PVM DB login. We would like each user to have Authenticator 2FA enabled. What is the best way to secure the PVM program with Authenticator 2FA for each user? Currently we have 2FA as a requirements in the DB settings:

Data Source Settings -> General -> Security -> Data Source Security -> Force data source 2 factor configuration

However this only allows us to configure one Google Authenticator device for the DB under File -> Data Sources -> Edit Data Source -> Connection -> 2 Factor.

What is the best way to configure Google Authenticator for each user using the workstation/PVM DB?

Hello,

On that workstation, are they connected with the same username or they each use a different username to connect on the workstation?

They are using the same Windows profile, but they have separate username/passwords when logging in to the PVM Azure SQL DB.

Hello,

Thank you for your response.

To accomplish this, you would need to create 2 different data source in the File -> Data Sources menu, one for each user. Is this what have been done?

Ahh...ok I guess that makes sense. It seems like a dirty workaround to have the same data source entered twice to accommodate two users.

Hello,

This is because your two users use the same account to authenticate on the computer.

If you don't want the user to select the proper data source to use, they would need to authenticate on the computer with a different account and not use the same. Then, it will be possible for you to use Integrated Security to authenticate on the database.
