Login History


LemonLDAP::NG allows one to store user logins and login attempts in their persistent session.

Users can see their own history in menu, if menu module Login history is enabled.

Session history is always visible in session explorer for administrators.


This feature can be enabled and configured in Manager, in General Parameters » Plugins » Login History. You can define how many logins and failed logins will be stored.

A login is considered as successful if user get authenticated and is granted a session; as failed, if he fails to authenticate or if he is not allowed to open a session. In other cases which result on impossibility to authenticate user, to retrieve data or to create a session, nothing is stored.

  • Max successful logins count: How many successful logins should be remembered in the history

  • Max failed logins count: How many failed logins should be remembered in the history

  • Session data to store: additional session variables to store in the history. Key is the variable (or macro) name, Value is the title of the column used when displaying the field. Use __hidden__ to store a variables without displaying it to the user.

By default, login time and IP address are stored in history, and the error message prompted to the user for failed logins. It is possible to store any additional session data. For example to store authentication, add a new key _auth with value Authentication mode.

To allow the Login History tab in Menu, configure it in General Parameters > Portal > Menu > Modules (see portal menu configuration).

You can also display a check box on the authentication form, to allow user to see their login history before being redirected to the protected application (see portal customization).
