12c: Sqlplus Displays Last Login Time For Non – Sys Users

12c database has introduced a pretty nifty Security feature which allows you to check last login time for non-sys user. e.g If I connect to scott user as below, it displays that I last logged in at Mon Jul 22 2013 09:06:07 +00:00. Time is displayed in local format (UTC in this case)

[oracle@oradbdev01]~% sqlplus scott/oracle
