Event logs

Event Log Event ID Provider Message
Application.evtx 100 ScreenConnect Client (<random>)* or Screenconnect Cloud account administrator connected
Application.evtx 101 ScreenConnect Client (<random>)* or Screenconnect Cloud account administrator disconnected
Application.evtx 201 ScreenConnect Client (<random>)* or Screenconnect Transferred files with action 'Transfer'

  • There is also a Service install (EID: 7045, System evtx) on screenconnect install.
  • No Evtxecmd map can cover this due to engineering decisions. The result will be in the Payload column.
  • Previous versions had all of the above events in EventID == 1. However, more recent testing showed 100, 101, and 201. The 4th row may still be Event ID == 1. Additional testing needed.
