Save any login operation done in your Plone site to an external database and provide a Plone interface for query the database.


This Plone add-on is based on z3c.saconfig and SQLAlchemy, and can't provide any new feature to Plone without a propert configuration.

Keep reading for installation and configuration guide.

How to use

After the installation, any login done in your Plone will save to an external database an entry that store:

  • user id
  • a timestamp

Then a new configuration panel can bhe found in the site configuration: "Monitor user logins".

From this view you can query the database previously populated:

Control panel for login monitor

You must limit the search inside a rande of dates, and optionally limiting users to members of a group. Results of the table displayed can be export to a CSV file.

Multiple sites

If your buildout hosts multiple Plone sites, all of them will store data in the database keeping same username on different sites separated.

Installation and configuration

You must configure an access to an external DBMS. The name of the engine used must be plone_logins.

Follow an example based on sqlite (not advised for production environment).

Add rt.lastmodifier to your buildout, then provide a SQLAlchemy connection string:

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 52)

Unknown directive type "code-block".

.. code-block:: ini



    zcml-additional =
        <configure xmlns="http://namespaces.zope.org/zope"
