What is session recording?

Session recording can be used to make a visual recording of RDP and SSH sessions. These recordings can then be subsequently viewed and evaluated. In this context, it is also possible to limit this functionality so that only the user themselves or an assigned person e.g. security officer can view and evaluate these recordings.

Relevant rights

The following options are required to manage sessions for an application.

User right

  • Can manage recordings for an application

Session recording firstly needs to be activated for the relevant RDP or SSH application before it can take place.



If the setting has been activated, the recording will start automatically the next time a connection is established.

Viewing the session recordings

If recordings exist for an application, these can be called up and viewed in the Applications module.

It is possible to search the session recordings using the filter as usual. It is also possible here to limit the search results based on the date and user. In the section on the right, it is also possible to further filter the searched list based on all column contents.

Once a session recording has been selected, a new tab will open in which you can view the recording. The function “Skip inactivity” can be activated via the ribbon so that a recording can be effectively and quickly viewed so as only to see the relevant actions.

When are indicators set?

  • Mouse click
  • Keyboard command

Automatic deletion of old recordings

If desired, recordings can be automatically cleaned up. This option can be configured on the AdminClient. Further information can be found in the section Managing databases.
