    1.  For a resource to qualify for a PWA license it requires the RES_TYPE < 20 AND LOGON_TO_PWA = YES

    2.  For a resource to qualify for a PRO license it requires the RES_TYPE < 20 AND LOGON_TO_PRO = YES AND LOGON_TO_PWA = YES

    3.  If one or more of the conditions above is not true then the resource is INACTIVE/DENIED and no license is required

  • Jeffrey,

    You can find when last time user connected to PWA, from Server Settings>> Manage Users

    Column name "Last Connect".

    Unfortunately you can't find duration of how long user connected,  If there is no user activity connect will be timeout in 30 minutes

  • Thanks Hrishi,

    I found the information as you indicated. Is there a way to determine the last time the users connected and the duration of their connections?

    I look forward to your thoughts. 

    Regards,

    Jeffrey
