JIRA provides a list of users who are currently accessing JIRA. This is useful if you need to know who to contact before planned downtime, for example.
Viewing Current User Sessions
To view a list of current JIRA user sessions:
- Log in as a user with the 'JIRA System Administrators' global permission.
- Bring up the administration page by clicking either the 'Administration' link on the top bar or the title of the Administration box on the dashboard.
- Select User Sessions from the System section of the administration menu. This will display the 'Current User Sessions in JIRA' screen:
The session id shown is also used in the JIRA access log and
It is possible to have "sessions" for computers that are not logged in. For example, when someone accesses JIRA without logging in, a unique session is created without a username (this is shown as 'Not Available' in the 'User' column).
To administer a user, click a username to go to the user's Profile, then select 'Administer User' from the 'Tools' menu.
