List of Users logged into Windchill.

Hi All,



I just wanted to know if there is anyway to gerenate a report to list the users that were/are logged into Windchill. I'm tryint to create a weekly report to see which users were logged in Windchill.



Any suggestions would be helpful.



Thanks,



Kiran Lakshminarayanan

Hello, Kiran,



I believe you can generate the information you're looking for with theUsage and License Reporting utility. You can find more information in the 10.1 M030 Help Center on ptc.com:

Hi Kiran,



you can also take a look to the database table AUDITRECORD filtering by eventlabel="Login"

On the Server Status page, it shows a number for the "Current Active Users". I'd like to see a list of the those peoples names. Is there a way to generate a list like that? I haven't found one so far.

If you want current, you'll have to access the Tomcat active session information. I've never done but quick Google search yielded many results.

This list is available from the server manager via JMX. The com.ptc ->
Monitors -> ActiveUsers in the MBean tree and the attribute you want is
TotalActiveUsers.

You can examine this via JConsole, VisualVM, or simply by clicking on
one of the "Server Manager: xxxx@yyy" links in the server status page.
This will produce an HTML (actually client-side-XSLT-styled XML) dump of
the server manager's current MBean data. Searching for "ActiveUsers"
and clicking on that link (found in the "Table of Contents" after the
"Overview" section) will show you the attributes of this MBean in an
HTML table.

Try this:
In a Windchill Shell, type 'windchill wt.util.jmx.SMJconsole'.

Navigate as shown.

That's somewhat different in that it will give you the users who
currently have established servlet sessions with a given method server,
not the current users across the whole Windchill instance (e.g. spanning
the whole cluster, including RMI clients, etc).

What you really want is the "active users" data as per my last post.

The servlet session data is also available via JMX in a fashion similar
to this -- except from the method server and from the ServletSessions
rather than ActiveUsers MBean.

Actually you don't want to natigate to the ActiveUsers MBean under the
MethodServers for the total list.

As per the warning in the ActiveUsers results, that won't give you
cluster-wide data. You really want the more accessible com.ptc ->
Monitors -> ActiveUsers MBean in the server manager itself.

You can check that using Jconsole. Go under Methodserver Sessions.

WOW



I am a rookie to Windchill administration and currently getting our first implementation going.



Someone asked how to air up a car tire and the responses were explaining how to build a car. Is everything this complicated with Windchill?



I sure hope not or I am in big trouble.

It all depends on what YOU want to get out (and put in) to Windchill.
Do you need to track users logged in at all times by name or just know that you haven't exceeded your licenses? Note: Windchill does not keep track of the number of users logged in versus licenses the way CREO does. While you have licenses in your license file, there is nothing stopping you from having 20X that number using Windchill. Some have seen this as a show stopper to Windchill implementation.

If you can live with the OOTB reports on usage, then it is easy. If you want more, you need to do more. The more you do beyond OOTB, the harder it is.

Ben,



Great response.



That makes me feel much better. I will try to stick to OOTB as much as possible. 🙂



Sometimes the language used around here is scary. It's like everyone is a programmer or scientist. lol
