Session Recording

Place access restrictions on recordings

You place access restrictions on target recordings in addition to role-based access control through recording viewing policies. Restricted recordings are accessible only to users and user groups that are assigned the PrivilegedPlayer role through the Session Recording Authorization Console.


Placing access restrictions on live recordings is not supported.
