-- Turn on Audit Logging to Blob for your Azure SQL Database. Then you can query who has logged in.
-- The example below assumes DB Server-level audit logging. Details will vary slightly for Database-level audit logging.
-- The example below shows who logged in so far today.
-- Change "-0" to "-1" to look at yesterday (from a UTC perspective, not your local timezone).
-- Change "-0" to "-100" to look at 100 days ago.

How many ticks since the first moment of 01-01-0001, the first day of the epoch used in Python (and .NET) date time libraries? This python program snippet calculates this. A Tick is defined (matching .NET's DateTime.UtcNow.Ticks property) as 1 / 10,000,000 of a Second. This conversion might be useful if you need interoperability across .NET lang…
# Bill Wilder (@codingoutloud), 02-Oct-2013
# Original:
import datetime
def ticks_since_epoch(start_time_override = None):
Calculates number of Ticks since Jan 1, 0001 epoch. Uses current time unless another time is supplied.
Mimics behavior of System.DateTime.UtcNow.Ticks from.NET with 10 million Ticks per second.
@return: Number of Ticks since Jan 1, 0001 epoch (earliest date supported by Python datetime feature)
