Number of Sessions

Icon

For Crowd 2.0.4 and newer versions, a single session is allowed for each user in a machine accessing an application integrated to Crowd. So, for instance, if you are accessing JIRA and then open a new Browser model and try to login to the same application, two sessions will be created in the issue tracker, however a single session will be created in Crowd. If one of the sessions is terminated in JIRA, all the sessions will be terminated.

For any given directory, Crowd allows you to see which users are currently logged in to one or more applications that use the Crowd framework.

You can also force any session to expire, that is, you can log the user out of Crowd.

To see which users are currently logged in to Crowd,

  1. Log in to the Crowd Administration Console.
  2. Click the 'Administration' tab in the top navigation bar.
  3. Click 'Current Sessions' in the left-hand menu.
  4. This will display the 'Session Browser'. Click the 'User Sessions' tab.
  5. Select the directory containing the users in which you are interested, and click the 'Search' button.
  6. This will display a list of all users, within your chosen directory, who are currently logged in to the Crowd framework.
    (info) You can refine your search by specifying a user's 'Name' (note that this is case-sensitive).
