How to get the user last log-in details from CAPM - CA Performance Management

Environment

Any CAPM Version

Resolution

To support security auditing, Single Sign-On logs details about user login activity to a file. Each time a user attempts to log in to the 
Performance Center
 login page, SSO logs an entry in the audit log.  If SSO redirects the user to a SAML2 server to log in or re-authenticate, SSO only logs successful logins.  Check the log to verify user activity. The log contains one line per login.
The following details are written to the log per login request:
  • Time and date stamp when the user logged in
  • Product code (for example, pc for Performance Center)
  • Username
  • Whether the Remember Me option was selected
  • Single Sign-On version
  • The remote host IP address
Follow these steps:
  • Log in to the server where a CA data source product is installed.
  • Open a command prompt, and cd to the following directory:
    [InstallationDirectory]/PerformanceCenter/sso/logs
    The audit log is saved in the following location on Windows servers:
    [InstallationDirectory]\Portal\SSO\logs.
  • Enter dir to see the contents of the directory.
     
    The filename of the log file is SingleSignOnAuditLogyyyy-mm-dd.log.
  • Enter the name of the audit file you want to view.
     
    The file opens in the local text editor application.
