Frequently asked questions

What does the last seen mean? Why is there is last seen for our users?

The last seen in the AWS services indicates the last password login time. And it is only accurate for after including 2019. If there is no value there, then the person either did not sign in with password since 2019 or the user does not have a password. This does not include the API access with the use of the access keys or login through the SSO.
