Views of instances

Hi,

We have encountered a 2nd customer asking us for the following functionality: When a user is opening an instance from a report, a list with all the users who viewed the data should be available.

I am not sure how that could be handled when users preview a report, as the reports could contain all the data from the instances. That functionality should probably be added on the reports somehow, but that is just my brain talking loudly.

Hi Razvan,

if the customer uses windows authentication you can probably make use of the IIS logs. In this case the user name is part of a log entry, if I remember correctly. You could periodically parse them, write the result to a database and show the results for the current URL.
I'm not sure, whether there is a (support way) to achieve this, if another mechanism is used. I was thinking about adding HttpModules to extract the name from the token, but than this is a .net core application. I've no idea if this would even be possible.

I'm linking a similar request:
