You could log the who of who is logged into the database, but if the database
connection is done from a front end, it would always be the users the front end
connects to the database as.  But if you have a front end, just manage it by who
is logged into the Front end.

I was wondering for what already exists before advocating that we write one.
 Looks like I should be looking at the documentation of the API.

Thank you very kindly.
