View active user sessions

As a system administrator, you can view information about active user sessions, enabling you to proactively mitigate the impact of a system maintenance outage or similar event for active users. You can also use the Active Sessions page to drill down into deployment tasks and control tasks associated with a user.


You must have admin permissions to access the Active Sessions page.
Note: Non-admin users with security edit permissions can also access the information on the Active Sessions page. See Roles and permissions for details.
