If a user’s computer hibernates, the user remains logged on to the system.

Computer name

Network computer name for the client computer where the user logged on.

Build number

Indicates the Microsoft Dynamics AX kernel build number.

Session ID

Because a user can log on several times daily, a unique session ID is assigned every time that a client logs on. The Session ID number is reset daily.


When this field is selected, the client has logged off successfully. When cleared, it indicates that the user is still online or was not logged off correctly.

Created date and time

The date and time that the system recognized the user transaction.

Logoff date time

The date and time that the system recognized the user as logged off. This time is updated every 15 minutes until the system no longer detects the client on the network. Even if the user does not log off successfully, this time is approximately when the client was disconnected.
