Log Out Users / Kill All User Session

Post by crave81 » Tue Apr 26, 2016 3:40 pm

Hi,

I am the Super Admin of a Joomla 3.5.1 site. How can I logout other users manually? I would like to be able to log out any/all users other than myself. I would like to be able to log out users one at a time, or in a batch if possible. Please advise, thanks!

Hi crave81,

As I know, in the Control Panel page, there is a default module which displays the list of recent logged - in users. And you could log out them via that module: http://screencast.com/t/qZr9p3Z2yrac

Hi Pham,

Thanks for your reply. I believe that the module you referenced only allows an Administrator to log out users from the Front End of Joomla.

I would like to have the ability to log users out of the Back End of Joomla. Please advise, thanks

No you are wrong it will log users out from the site or the admin. It shows you both site and admin sessions and you can use either or both

Hi, I don't understand how I can log out users from the admin with the LAST 5 LOGGED-IN USERS module.

Please see this screenshot: Image

In the screenshot, am logged into my site's Back End as a Super Admin. In a separate browser, I have logged in to both the Front End and Back End as user DevJ481, who has Manager access. An "X" (circled in red) appears next to DevJ481 - "Site" (Front End). I am able to use that to log user DevJ481 out of the front end. However, next to the entry for DevJ481 - "Administration", there is no X present, and I cannot log the user out of the Back End.

Admin Tools has the functionality to logout all users (i.e. clear the whole session)

All of these methods only work in full if you are using the database as your session store. If you are using the filesystem or a platform like APC or Memcached for your session store these "force logout" things will not work in full. Just saying this so everyone's clear.
