How does Tableau Server differentiate a login/logout request from Tableau Desktop client and a login/logout requests on web client (web browser)?
Take a simple Fiddler trace of doing each login (from web and from Tableau Desktop) and you will see they reach a slightly different URL for login. You should also be able to see this in the HTTP access log files and http_requests table I believe.
