Hello @leokeinsfeld,

Take a look at the following article:

 

Events Provided by the SecurityMonitor Thing on ThingWorx 

 

Unfortunately, this feature is not provided OOTB. However, you can create your own Data Table to store this data:

 

  • The Data Shape fields can be determined by you (i.e. username, loggedInTime, loggedOutTime, sessionTime...)
  • Create a subscription to the Logout event found on the SecurityMonitor Thing
  • The Logout subscription will use the CurrentSessionInfo Resource to run the GetCurrentUserExtensionProperties service, and return an infotable with the current user information, including a lastConnection field in datetime format
  • Populate the Data Table with all the obtained information
    • loggedInTime -> infotable.lastConnection (from GetCurrentUserExtensionProperties)
    • loggedOutTime -> currentTime (see article below)
    • username -> infotable.name (from GetCurrentUserExtensionProperties)
    • sessionTime -> use dateDifference function found in code snippets, DateFunctions

This should allow you to keep track of all sessions in ThingWorx. You can play around with the services and events to create your own subscriptions that fit your use case and populate the Data Table.

Emmanuel

Hi @emscur 

 

I have seen this topics but I was not able to use it to resolve my problem.

 

I need to find one way to monitor how long time the users are logged in Thingworx Platform.

 

I would like to show this value in minutes.
