Page view logs and session activity logs

New in Vinyl 3.1 we introduce Page View Logs and Session Activity Logs. The purpose of this read-only information is to provide greater visibility and insights into how Users engage with applications in the environment and allow tracking of sessions at a granular level of detail.
