Apps - collect/display last usage information


(Claas Aug.) #1

The Apps section in the User Preferences displays when an access has been approved.

I suggest collecting and displaying information about when each access was last used, ideally per granted permission. (This data could also be used to automatically revoke unused accesses after some time.)

Oh that’s a great idea, can we add that in 2.1 @sam?


(Sam Saffron) #3

Sure I would like to just add a simply “last used” and sort so last used is on top.

Also, will add a site setting to “auto expire” keys that have not been used for say 6 months, default on. Which is a super welcome security change.

A+++ excellent idea, we like to be safe by default. Let’s be sure this goes into 2.1

What is the status of this @nbianca?

It is currently under review.

PR has now been merged :muscle:

Note, before someone reports this here :snowman_with_snow:

We only started tracking “last use” after this change. This means that the user profile says “Last use: 8 hours ago” on some keys you may have not used in years.

This will “fix itself up” over time, no real choice here but to start somewhere.
