How can I define a filter for Userloggedin sensor ? Syntax of filter parameters ?

We have a map using the UserLoggedIn Sensor to check who is connected to our Citrix HDX workstations. When we now start to use Windows 10 workstations the sensor recognizes a hidden system account DWM-1 (apparently used for the Windows Desktop Manager service) and therefore the status for the sensor is "in use" although anybody is actuallly logged in. I found the hint, that UserLoggedIn.exe supports the parameter -f=filter. But I didn't find detailed descriptions about the syntax of the filter parameters.

My wish would be: Ignore all users like DWM-# but tell me the username of all other users.

Can you please give me a hint how to define the filter ?

Thanks a lot in advance

To filter out all DMW users you can add

-nodwm

to the parameter section, this will exclude all DWM-xxx users

Hello winters,

Thank you very much for your contact.

The corresponding parameter to filter the default DWM users would be:
-c=computername -fx -f=DWM-1 Please adjust computername accordingly.

Best regards,
Sebastian
