Last logged in / current user

Good evening,

 

we are using the new ERA 6.4 by now and a great feature we miss is to display the last logged in user / current user of a machine.

I've tried to display the user via a client task in the computer description field - sadly unsuccessful.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks and best regards.

Hello, the "logged user field" will be added to "client details" in the ERA 6.5. 

Just out of curiosity, which problem you are trying to solve, by showing this information?

As Michal wrote, it should be available in upcoming release. Until then, you could use custom reports for this. For example report template configured as this:

will provide you list of currently logged in users (currently = in the moment of last AGENT connection).

 

You could also create report template showing history of logged users using this configuration:

post-9831-0-01770900-1477588616_thumb.png

 

which will show history of logged users with time interval. I would recommend to use some kind of filter (for example filter to specific computer) as it may contain too many record after a time. Also be aware that AGENT will start to collect and send this kind of information once you create this report template, therefore you won't be able to see historical data.

Thanks for the quick responses.

 

In the past we used the ERA 5 to get a quick view for simple client management tasks like rebooting, start rdp sessions, identify machines for userhelpdesk etc. While using roaming profiles and generic machine names it helps a lot to see the last logged/current logged in user. We could extract the same information with powershell from our Active Directories, but to get this information from the ERA 6 again would be much smoother.

 

Best regards
