Joseph Gullo commented on GUACAMOLE-221:

I saw above that you had less of an issue having a prompt for password 
work...is it possible to see a patch to turn this feature on?  We're tied into 
AD and are experimenting with having an "allow users to access their windows 
desktop computers from home over RDP" setup...we don't really want to store the 
AD credentials in the guacamole database, and we don't want this to be an 
update location for when users change their passwords.  If we could globally 
have a password prompt for users making RDP connections, I think my management 
would approve the use of this.

> Some parameters, such as the username/password for VNC or RDP, are better 
> entered manually within the client when connecting rather than stored on the 
> server in MySQL or {{user-mapping.xml}}.
> Storing secure data within parameters on the server side has security 
> implications that don't fit well with all use cases.
> Further, some connections would benefit if their settings can be modified 
> locally before connecting. A user could change the color depth or screen size 
> of their RDP session, for example, for the sake of a slower connection.
