The following is a list of persons who know Batman's secret identity as Bruce Wayne.

Person/Entity First Learned/Established in Notes
Alfred Pennyworth Batman: TAS, "On Leather Wings" Chronologically, from the beginning of Batman's career, as chronicled in Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.
Amanda Waller Justice League Unlimited, "Ultimatum" Possibly learned from Dr. Hugo Strange. Alternatively, analyzed a sample of Batman's blood.
Andrea Beaumont/The Phantasm Batman: Mask of the Phantasm Saw Batman at the grave of Bruce's parents.
Barbara Gordon/Batgirl The New Batman Adventures, "Sins of the Father" Chronologically, in the flashback in The New Batman Adventures, "Old Wounds".
Clark Kent/Superman Superman: TAS, "World's Finest, Part I" Used his x-ray vision to peek through Batman's cowl when they first met and battled.
Dick Grayson/Robin/Nightwing Batman: TAS, "Christmas With the Joker" Chronologically, in Batman: TAS, "Robin's Reckoning".
H.A.R.D.A.C. Batman: TAS, "Heart of Steel, Part I" Learned from Randa Duane's infiltration of the Batcave. The knowledge was passed on to its android duplicants, but all of those have likely been destroyed.
Dr. Hugo Strange Batman: TAS, "The Strange Secret of Bruce Wayne" Strange learned of Batman's identity by subjecting Bruce Wayne to his mind-reading machine under the guise of relaxation therapy. However, Strange's certainty may have been shaken by Robin later masquerading as Bruce Wayne in front of both Strange and Batman at the same time.
Ian Peek Batman Beyond, "Sneak Peek" Planted a spycam on the Batmobile and learned of both Terry McGinnis and Bruce. Neutralized for all intents and purposes when Peek was consumed by his matter-phasing belt and sank to the earth's core in a permanently intangible state. The transformation seemed to drive Peek mad, to boot.
J'onn J'onzz Justice League, "Starcrossed, Part II" At the same time as Flash and Green Lantern.
Jason Blood/Etrigan The New Batman Adventures, "The Demon Within" Told by Bruce Wayne.
John Stewart/Green Lantern Justice League, "Starcrossed, Part II" At the same time as Flash and J'onn J'onzz.
The Joker Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker Learned from his interrogation of Tim Drake, sometime shortly before his death.
Kairi Tanaga Batman Beyond, "Curse of the Kobra, Part I" Possibly learned from Yoru Sensei. For sure after observing Terry and Batman's similar need to watch out for their left side.
Kyodai Ken Batman: TAS, "Day of the Samurai" Though, according to Bruce, Kyodai first gained this knowledge in "Night of the Ninja", based on a comparison of Bruce and Batman's fighting styles.
Leslie Thompkins Batman: TAS, "Appointment in Crime Alley" Chronologically, probably for as long as Alfred.
Lois Lane Superman: TAS, "World's Finest, Part III His cape and mask got caught in the paper machine.
Maxine Gibson Batman Beyond, "Final Cut" Deduced it in Batman Beyond, "Hidden Agenda".
Ra's al Ghul Batman: TAS, "The Demon's Quest, Part I" Determined from analysis of who could acquire all of the equipment that Batman would require and matching Bruce Wayne to Talia's description.
Randa Duane Batman: TAS, "Heart of Steel, Part I" Destroyed.
Shayera Hol/Hawkgirl Justice League, "Starcrossed, Part II" Presumably she learned it before her first entry into the Batcave.
Talia Batman: TAS, "The Demon's Quest, Part I" Though she first saw Batman unmasked in Batman: TAS, "Off Balance", she gives an evasive answer when he asks if she recognizes his face.
Terry McGinnis Batman Beyond, "Rebirth, Part I" Discovered the Batcave and the Batsuits under Wayne Manor.
Tim Drake/Robin The New Batman Adventures, "Sins of the Father". Tim's first appearance as Robin was The New Batman Adventures, "Holiday Knights", but "Sins" was produced first.
Virgil Hawkins/Static Static Shock, "Hard as Nails" Deduced when he sees Alfred waiting for Bruce, as they come out of the hospital where Allie is being treated.
Wally West/The Flash Justice League, "Starcrossed, Part II" At the same time as Green Lantern and J'onn J'onzz.
Wonder Woman Justice League, "Maid of Honor, Part II" Knowledge of his identity is implied rather than explicit; she definitively learns who he is in "Starcrossed, Part II".
Zatanna Batman: TAS, "Zatanna" Although in that episode, she addresses him as "John Smith", she appears at Bruce Wayne's wedding in The New Batman Adventures, "Chemistry", and calls him by his right name in Justice League Unlimited, "This Little Piggy".

Conjectural

The following is a list of persons whose knowledge of Batman's secret identity has been hinted at, but not established.

Person/Entity First Learned/Established in Notes
Ace Justice League Unlimited, "Epilogue" Though, being telepathic, she may have learned it during their first encounter, in Justice League, "Wild Cards, Part II".
Dana Tan Presumably coupled with the knowledge that Terry McGinnis is the new Batman.
Harley Quinn Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker Presumably when Joker learned Batman's identity when he unmasked Tim Drake, since Harley was his accomplice, it is possible she learned his identity and kept it out of respect after the Joker's death.
James Gordon Barbara tells Terry the only other person who knew what happened the night Joker died was her father. Since he already knew his daughter was Batgirl, it can be deduced that he learned Bruce Wayne is Batman.
Kairi Tanaga Batman Beyond, "Curse of the Kobra, Part I" Possibly learned from Yoru Sensei. For sure after realizing Terry was Batman from him having to guard his left side better.
Simon Trent/The Gray Ghost Batman: TAS, "Beware the Gray Ghost" Based on similar conversations held with both Batman and Bruce Wayne.
Two-Face/Harvey Dent Batman: TAS, "The Strange Secret of Bruce Wayne" Revealed by Dr. Hugo Strange under pressure. Simply scoffed that was a ludicrous concept, as he was a longtime friend of Bruce Wayne.
Chronos Justice League Unlimited,
"The Once and Future Thing Part Two: Time, Warped"
The Batcave has been destroyed. He may have recognised an unmasked Bruce from their encounter in the Wild West.
Yoru Batman: TAS, "Day of the Samurai" Based on his training of Bruce.

Batman Beyond

The following is a list of persons who know Batman's secret identity as Terry McGinnis (Those who knew Bruce Wayne was the original Batman tend to automatically know that Terry is the new one given Bruce's limited social circle).

Person/Entity First Learned/Established in Notes
Amanda Waller Justice League Unlimited, "Epilogue" None better, as the architect of Project Batman Beyond.
Commissioner Barbara Gordon Batman Beyond, "Spellbound" Based on the simple deduction that Terry was the only person who had any regular contact with Bruce in the present. Barbara realized it was no coincidence that the new Batman appeared right around the same time Terry was hired as Bruce's "assistant."
Bruce Wayne Batman Beyond, "Rebirth" After an encounter, Bruce knew Terry stole the Batsuit. However, the two soon came to an arrangement and Bruce gave Terry his blessing to become the new Batman.
Clark Kent/Superman Batman Beyond, "The Call, Part I" Saw Terry in action and then met him and Bruce, although, like others, he presumably knew who Terry was already given his knowledge of Bruce. Also possible he used his x-ray vision to see through Terry's cowl just as he did Bruce's years earlier.
Dana Tan Justice League Unlimited, "Epilogue" Learned at some unspecified time after they both graduated high school.
Fingers Batman Beyond, "Speak No Evil" Escorted to Africa by Terry and Bruce at the end of the episode.
Ian Peek Batman Beyond, "Sneak Peek" Planted a spycam on the Batmobile and learned of both Terry and Bruce. Neutralized for all intents and purposes when Peek was consumed by his matter-phasing belt and sank to the earth's core in a permanently intangible state. The transformation seemed to drive Peek mad, to boot.
The Joker Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker Likely deduced Terry's identity from his contact with Bruce.
Kairi Tanaga Batman Beyond, "The Curse of the Kobra, Part I"
Maxine Gibson Batman Beyond, "Hidden Agenda" Deduced Terry's identity based on her research.
Ra's al Ghul Batman Beyond, "Out of the Past" Identified Terry as the new Batman as he knew that it would have to be someone acquainted with Bruce Wayne.
Stalker Batman Beyond, "Bloodsport" Used a special grenade that covered Batman with phosphorous powder, which allowed the hunter to easily track him down.
Tamara Caulder Batman Beyond, "Mind Games" Telepathy.
Tim Drake Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker Terry introduced himself to Drake after the Joker's mind was 'purged' from his body.
Virgil Hawkins/Static Static Shock, "Future Shock" Introduced by Bruce when he time-traveled to the future and teamed up with Terry to rescue his future self.
