Web console: Option to display logged on username persistently

Idea ID 2801034

Web console: Option to display logged on username persistently

In the legacy ASP web console, the logged on user (domain\username) is displayed in the top left corner of the web console. This is extremely helpful when assisting users with web console issues and you need to know at a glance which user is logged on (particularly when users have multiple accounts that have been granted different roles/powers). Please add this as an option.

This is present in 9.1 (at least in my lab). What version are you running?

The 9.2 REST web console does not display the username of the logged on user (and there's no option to enable it).

Hi Bill,

In 10, we show the logged in user by selecting the Account icon in the upper right of the web page.  Are you wanting to see the logged on user name as part of the Icon, or would you like to click on the Icon and see the logged in user?

Hi Jeff, the idea is to have an option for the username to appear persistently at the top of the web console without having to click anything. For those that don't want to see the username, it could be toggled off. For others, they could enable the option for the username to appear persistently.
