Is there any option to find out, which Browser, OS, Device and IP address of our users using to log in to Qlik Sense production system?
Can this data be found in the Qlik Sense monitoring apps or Qlik Sense logs?Environments:
Qlik Sense any version
Method 1, using the Qlik Sense Proxy logs
This method requires for the Proxy log files logging level to be increased, and for Extended Security Environment to be enabled. Extended Security Environment has consequences in the environment, such as disabling the potential of sharing sessions across multiple devices. See the Qlik Online help
Settings to Enable:
- In the Qlik Sense Management Console, select the required Proxy
- Navigate to Logging
- Set the Audit Log level to Debug
- In the Qlik Sense Management Console, select the required Virtual Proxy
- Navigate to Advanced
- Enable "Extended Security Environment"
The proxy will now log additional information in: C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\Proxy\Trace\[Server_Name]_Audit_Proxy
Example Output:Audit.Proxy.Proxy.Core.Connection.ConnectionData [X-Qlik-Security, OS=Windows; Device=Default; Browser=Chrome 67.0.3396.99; IP=::ffff:172.16.16.100; ClientOsVersion=10.0; SecureRequest=true; LicenseContext=UserAccess; Context=AppAccess; ] || [X-Qlik-User, UserDirectory=DOMAIN; UserId=administrator]
For more information on where to find the logs seeHow To Collect Qlik Sense Log Files
Method 2, using the Qlik Sense HubService logs
A much more lighter-weight approach than method 1 would be to parse the HubService logs in C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\HubService. No additional settings are required.
