Just bumping this back up to the top.  Been working a Citrix case since August on this and its now resolved with CWAL 2109 preview and Citrix VDA 1912 CU3, tested in CU1 and it does not work in CU1.

CWAL 2109 preview has this feature added, apparently it wasn’t even a thing in prior versions of CWAL. Now we need to wait for Dell to get CWAL 2109 packaged and you need to be on Citrix VDA 1912 LTSR CU3 (didn’t test CU2 it might work) or higher.

Session Reliability enhancement

Previously, with HDX Broadcast session reliability, you continue to see a published application’s window if the connection to the application experiences an interruption.

With this release, you can see the screen changes when session reliability begins. The session window is grayed out and a countdown timer shows the time until the next reconnection attempt.

You can alter the grayscale brightness used for an inactive session using Reconnection UI transparency level policy. By default, this value is set to 80. The maximum value cannot exceed 100 (indicates a transparent window) and the minimum value can be set to 0 (a fully blacked out screen).

When a session successfully reconnects, the countdown notification message disappears. You can interact with the desktop as usual.

Starting with the 2109 release, the session reliability notification is enabled by default. To disable this enhancement:

1. Navigate to the /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/config/module.ini configuration file.

2. In the [WFClient] section, modify the following setting:
