How can I see the username when using the Users Logged In sensor?



The Users Logged In sensor just tells me the number of users - which for us will always be one. I need to know the username. This has appeared before on the sensor, but I don't know how it happened and cannot repeat the behavior. Please help.

With the Users Logged In sensor, you can define usernames that are counted when they are logged in in the filter or have that filter not count if a user is not logged in but it will not display a list of users that are logged into the server.

Thank you for the information. Is there a way to have the logged in sensor simply show yes or no that someone is logged in by using different colors? That would be helpful when using the sensors on a map. Thanks again.

This should be able to do what you are talking about along with setting limits for that channel in the channel settings
