View RDP Replays

Because RDP Replays are binary objects and not typical logs, they must be kept in object storage systems (such as AWS S3, Azure Blob, Google Cloud Storage, etc.) and not in logging systems (such as AWS Cloudwatch, Azure Monitor, Splunk, etc.) to ensure they don't get corrupted.

RDP sessions initiated through strongDM are available for download as an MP4 file. In the Admin UI, in section Logs > RDP, you can render and download any session from the last 100 days as long as those sessions were not encrypted. Rendering time is directly tied to the length of the video being rendered. For longer videos, you may need to wait 10 or 15 minutes. Once a video is rendered, the user who requested the video will receive an email stating that it is ready to download.

Only the most minimal of RDP settings are supported for RDP via strongDM. Trying to use advanced options or configurations may prevent replays from being rendered and played.

The Admin UI will display up to 4,500 log lines. For more information about log retention and the more extensive logs available from the CLI, see the Log Retention documentation.
