Multiple sessions in shiny app resets the previous datatable

Hello, Im trying to use a datatable in two or more synchronized sessions whitin a shiny app, but as soon as the second table renders in the second session, the values of the first datatable in the first session restores to 0 and it becomes useless. Im using my datatable to input data so all the values input in the first session goes to 0 as soon as the second instance of the datatable gets rendered on the 2nd browser or session.

output[[unique_id]] <- renderDataTable(server = TRUE, future = FALSE,{
        session$userData[[paste0("catching_tables_", session_id)]]$play_table_catching(),
          rownames = FALSE,
          selection = "none",
          escape = FALSE,
          class = DT:::DT2BSClass(c('compact', 'cell-border')),
          # callback = htmlwidgets::JS(
          #   "$('').css('border-bottom', 'none');"
          # ),
          options = list(
            pageLength = 50,
            columnDefs = list(
              list(width = '300px', targets = "_all"),
              list(className = 'dt-center', targets = 0:11),
              list(visible = FALSE, targets = c(0, 1, 2, 3, 4))
            dom = 'r',
            ordering = FALSE,
            rowCallback = htmlwidgets::JS("function(r,d) {$(r).attr('height', '10px')}"),
              'function() {
            drawCallback= JS(
              'function(settings) {
            initComplete = htmlwidgets::JS(
              "function(settings, json) {",
              "$(this.api().table().header()).css({'background-color': '#002D72', 'color': 'white', 'font-family': 'Helvetica'});",

Is there anything in particular that may be causing this behaviour?
