Session Recording

View recordings

Use the Session Recording Player to view, search, and bookmark recorded Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops sessions.

If sessions are recorded with the live playback feature enabled, you can view sessions that are in progress, with a delay of 1-2 seconds.  

Sessions that have a longer duration or larger file size than the limits configured by your Session Recording administrator appear in more than one session file.


A Session Recording administrator must grant users the right to access the recorded sessions of VDAs. If you are denied access to viewing sessions, contact your Session Recording administrator.

When the Session Recording Player is installed, the Session Recording administrator typically sets up a connection between the Session Recording Player and a Session Recording Server. If this connection is not set up, the first time you perform a search for files, you are prompted to set it up. Contact your Session Recording administrator for setup information.
