That documentation is not correct anymore, sorry about that.  Will see about getting it fixed, but I put an example at [1] that should work to accomplish the same thing.  The “SSH:: heuristic_successful_login” event is somewhat delayed, so just be aware of that if you’re looking for immediate feedback to check whether it’s working.  And another gotcha is that the event only triggers after a certain amount of data is transmitted so just logging in/out real quick may not be detected.  (I’m realizing this example is no longer that straightforward and probably doesn’t belong in the quick-start guide anymore).
