LabTech Plugin: Win Logon Viewer
Posted on July 25, 2015
This plugin was created as a request from a member of our community – Thanks, Ryan! It will give you the same functionality as Nirsoft’s WinLogOnView, but straight within LabTech and with no extra dependencies. This plugin will read the submitted event logs for the computer and look for logon/logoff times and allow you to view them. You can select a user to see all of their logon/logoff times, export all entries or just selected entries to an Excel sheet, and refresh the logs right from the window.
Note that the results are dependent on eventvwr security logs being retrieved into the database and that the history will only be as useful as the information that can be retrieved.
To use this plugin, open up any computer and click the Win Logon Viewer tab. It will take a few seconds to load the results.
Download and install using our plugin installer!
Hello, when using the Win Logon Viewer plugin I am seeing that some computers are blank and show no results. Where should I start troubleshooting for this?
The plugin pulls from the event logs for the given computer, but it pulls the ones that are in the database so that it works quickly. Make sure that the computer can do Inventory->Resend Events. If that works, the plugin will work.
does not work on Labtech 10. Error:
There was an error loading the list of logins. Please change tabs and then come back to this one. Das Argument Start muss größer als 0 (null) sein. [Translated: Argument Start need to be bigger than zero]
Is there a chance that you can fix that ? Or a paid fix ?
Have you confirmed that there are items listed in the security log of the computer? Check the Logs tab, then Security. And if you will, email email@example.com and I’ll make sure to get you taken care of.
Hey Tim, this is great stuff. I love the Nirsoft makes. Anyway to create a plugin like this to have a tab that shows user profiles stored on the computer using Nirsoft UserProfilesView . Great work on the plugins, real good stuff!
This has come in great handy several times, especially on an RDS. I wondered if there was a way that I could query all of the machines under a location in a given timeframe?
We have a client who always wants to know who is logging out around the time her database gets faster. The answer is usually everyone else.
This plugin is currently ad-hoc only, and per computer. I’ll certainly add to the road map the ability to see all logins at a given location.
Plugin works…..sort of. It’s displaying a list of events for a PC but it isn’t showing the associated username. This is querying against a Win 7 x86 PC.
Can you shoot an email with a screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org? I haven’t heard of that issue before.
Is this plugin compatible with LabTech v11 yet? We upgraded recently, not taking into consideration possible plugin compatibility, and this one seems to be showing gibberish now.
I’ll check into that and let you know.
Any news yet. I am wanting to try this on LT 11 (11.0.342) Patch 7
Of course LabTech is now called ConnectWise Automate.
I’ve got some updates to make to this plugin and hope to have an updated version released this weekend.
Has this plugin been updated to support LT11?
I apologize, but it hasn’t yet been updated. There’s now a ticket in so that this can get taken care of.
