Identity Cloud

View and manage sessions

The AM admin UI lets the administrator view and manage active server-side user sessions by realm by going to Realms > Realm Name > Sessions.

The AM administrator can view and invalidate server-side sessions.
Figure 1. Sessions Page

To view a user’s active sessions, enter a user ID in the search box.

How do I find the user’s ID?
  1. In the Identity Cloud admin UI, go to Identities > Manage.

  2. From the Realm Name - Users list, click the username to view the user details.

  3. Click Raw JSON from the left-hand menu, and copy the value for _id. For example, 0c8a31fa-a763-4fca-9352-0c3cc84a2138.

AM retrieves the sessions for the user and displays them within a table. If no active server-side session is found, AM displays a session not found message.

You can end any session by selecting it and clicking the Invalidate Selected button. As a result, the user has to authenticate again.

Deleting a user does not automatically remove any of the user’s server-side sessions. After deleting a user, check for any sessions for the user and remove them on the Sessions page.

Use the REST API for advanced functionality regarding sessions.
