Last time an account logged into GroupWise 2012

Hello,

I am looking for a way to find out when the last time a GroupWise account has been accessed. I see the "Last Client Login" in ConsoleOne but I am pretty sure that just covers when the last time that account used the GroupWise client to access their account. I am hoping to find a solution that will encompass all access methods (client, IMAP, POP, webaccess, Novell Data Sync).

This is needed so I can provide a report to my HR dept. They need to know if certain accounts are still active. Thanks in advance for the help!

So my response to timatmillikin's comment is...

I believe you can run an audit in C1 for the post office (highlight
P.O., Tools, Utilities, Mailbox Maint, in the dropdown is an audit
report). In here you can specify how far back you want to check if
users have logged in.

Not sure if this counts things like datasync, but it might.

Hi,

It does count SOAP ( e.g. DataSync, and WebAccess on 2012 and later ) and other methods to access the account like GWINTER, IMAP, and POP.

If you keep your POA logs, which we do, you can scrub through them. Often times you will have proxy or shared folder situations where another user still has access. The POA logs can distinguish between the methods of access, and show you who is getting access via assigned rights. This helps eliminate surprises.

Thanks for all the help, appreciate it! I think the POA audit will work, I'll just have to scrub through them like you said. It's unfortunate that you have to run the audit task against the whole post office. Hopefully the new version of GroupWise will have more customized reporting built-in.

It does not, however, cover proxy if I'm remembering correctly. It needs a true
"login" to count.
