Summary

Sometimes you may need to know how active your user base is, whom, and how many users logged in to Confluence during a specific time frame.

Using the queries below you can get the last logon times, successful login times and failed login times of users within a group. 

  • Please note that this will show info for all users on that group except  the super-user 'admin'
  • To show the info for all groups within your Confluence change the g.group_name = <group_name>  to g.group_name is not null .

Environment

Confluence 6.x, 7.x

Solution

Last logon times

The below query will return a list of users who last logged in or unsuccessfully tried to log in to Confluence on the timeframe interval you define. You will require access to run queries on Confluence database to extract these values.

(info) Replace <group-name> with a specific group name, i.e. 'confluence-users'

(info) Left Joining last_login_date will return users who have never logged in as having last_login=NULL

WITH last_login_date AS
(SELECT user_id
      , to_timestamp(CAST(cua.attribute_value AS double precision)/1000) AS last_login
   FROM cwd_user_attribute cua
  WHERE cua.attribute_name = 'lastAuthenticated'
    )
SELECT c.user_name
     , c.lower_user_name
     , c.email_address
     , c.display_name
     , c.last_name 
     , g.group_name
     , l.last_login
  FROM cwd_user c
 INNER JOIN last_login_date l ON (c.id = l.user_id)
 INNER JOIN cwd_membership m  ON (c.id = m.child_user_id)
 INNER JOIN cwd_group g       ON (m.parent_id = g.id)
 WHERE g.group_name = '<group-name>'
 ORDER BY last_login DESC;

Make sure to edit the timezone in the query as per your timezone. You can find the value of your timezones in https://docs.oracle.com/cd/B13866_04/webconf.904/b10877/timezone.htm

Last successful login times

Below query will return a list of users who last successfully logged in to Confluence on the timeframe interval you define.

(info) Replace '<group-name>' with a group name, i.e. 'confluence-users'
