Where in v$ views is hiding info about PROXY_USERNAME ?
I'am aware of little piece of information in v$session_connect_info and dbproxy_username column in unified_audit_trail.
Most appropriate place will be in v$session, but i didn't find it.

Regards Dejan

DBA_PROXIES shows you details of the current proxy sessions:

create user u identified by u;
alter user chris grant connect through u;

conn u[chris]/u

select * from dba_proxies;

U        CHRIS     NO                PROXY MAY ACTIVATE ALL CLIENT ROLES    <null>    DATABASE

Thanks for prompt answer.
This is dictionary data of proxy users also available in dba_proxies, but I am searching this dbproxy_username info for currently connected sessions.

Sorry, missed that. I'm not sure if that information is (easily) available. I'll ask around.
