Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonSeptember 19, 2015

Oracle 12c SQL*Plus added additional information to the display that comes up when you enter SQL*Plus, showing the last login time for that user ID.  Now by default, the successful last login is displayed for the user ID when they enter SQL*Plus:

sqlplus scott/tiger

SQL*Plus: Release Production on <date of login>

Last Successful login time: <last_login>

Connected to:
Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production
With the Partitioning, OLAP, Advanced Analytics, Real Application Testing
and Unified Auditing options

This option can be disable when you enter sqlplus with the -nologintime sreument to the sqlplus command:

sqlplus -nologintime scott/tiger

Reporting on users SQL*Plus activity

This login duration information is also stored in the column named spare6 of sys.user$ and can be queried in the column last_login of the dba_users view. You can get a report of all users and their last successful login time with this script

col username   format a15
col last_login format a25
