Viewing Logged-In Users

You can server-specifically view the currently logged-in users and their license types.

Do the following steps to view the users who are currently logged in to the server:

  1. Open M-Files Admin.
  2. In the left-side tree view, expand a connection to M-Files server.
  3. Click Login Accounts.
  4. In the task area, click Show Logged-in Users.

The Logged-in Users dialog is opened, showing the users who are currently logged in. You can click Refresh to update the view.

If necessary, you can also force certain users to log out by selecting the user and clicking Force Logout. This might be very useful, for instance, when concurrent licenses are used: The operation enables you to force the logout of idle users to release the license to be used by someone who actually needs it at the moment. Forcing active users to log out, however, normally does not affect them at all. Active users immediately get a license if available licenses exist.
Note: Displaying the logged-in users and forcing their logout requires you to have administrator rights.
