RHEL 7 limit user logins

RHEL 7 limit user logins

RHEL 7 limit user logins

We have an application running on a RHEL 7 server that requires user licenses to run. We would like to limit certain groups to a set number of logins so they don't use more licenses than they have been allocated. I tried using the /etc/security/limits.conf file to do this but it isn't working. I did read that RHEL 7 no longer uses this file.

How can I accomplish limiting a group to a specific number of consecutive logins in RHEL 7? I'm not real proficient with linux so any explanation would need to be very descriptive.

Users are accessing the serving using ssh.

Thanks for any constructive input.
