    Does any know if there is a portal command that is the equvilant of the "finger" command on LID? From time to time we need to see who is logged in through the Portal and I can not find anything on the Lawson knowledge base (no surprise there) that will show me how to do this.

    Thanks,

    Hello, Maris!

    It's important to understand that with most web applications there is no such thing as an "active session" kept by a web server. Every time time you click a button, your browser "re-login" behind the scenes to Portal.
    LID on the other hand uses TELNET (on UNIX) to login - which is persistent-session protocol.

    The bottom line - by analyzing web logs you can say that someone is in Portal with some PROBABILITY (e.g. they accessed something 5 seconds ago), but you CANNOT determine definitely that a user has web browser open with Portal screen on it.
