Email alerts for SEAS errors

Add REST API for the RUN TIME information

Add "Session ID" for SEAS authentication attempts

In a high-traffic system it can be difficult to determine which log entries in the seas logs are related to a given authentication attempt. Currently we're forced to grep / search for the specific username /timeframe and then manually parse throug...
