How to Launch a Recording Directly From Your Browser

Within the SessionCam console, you can go directly to a session replay if you have the SessionID readily available... this is a very useful technique to use when you're testing the initial implementation of SessionCam, or are making changes, such as implementing new custom features (such as Custom Page Names / Virtual Pages).

To obtain the SessionID: within your browser, open up the Developer Tools and navigate to the console tab, like so:

Then, enter the following instruction and press enter:

window.sessionCamRecorder.sessionId()

In order to go directly to a Session Replay, use the URL below and replace xxxx with the Session ID you have just been returned:

https://console.sessioncam.com/Console/Recordings/PlaybackSession?sessionId=xxxx

This will then take you straight to the session replay screen.
