Hi, Thanks for sharing the information. I want to generate a shared connection by default with every user connection. This will help Admin to directly connect to user session and see what user is performing in the system.
Pls let me know if this is possible.

Now I want to share the created connection with others, can it be done? Yes. Even the database implementation is an authentication provider which leverages the same API. None of the extensions that are part of guacamole-client use anything that a third-party extension cannot use in exactly the same way. The part of the API that deals with sharing connections with others is pretty abstract. The database implementation uses a link containing a query parameter, but you can do just about anything here. It's really up to you to decide how things will be shared. The extension API conceptualizes this using credentials specific to sharing. Combined with sharing profiles, this mainly allows you to expose the ability to share the connection such that choices for sharing will be available in that "Share" menu within the Guacamole menu: http://guacamole.apache.org/doc/guacamole-ext/org/apache/guacamole/net/auth/Shareable.html The technical capability to share an active connection is independent of the above. Internally, all that matters is that you pull the ID generated by guacd for the connection to be shared, and provide that ID (rather than a protocol name) when connecting as a user sharing that connection. That's all you need to do for that second connection to join the first. Regardless of whether you use sharing credentials, the share menu, etc., it's the use of that ID that causes the underlying connection to be a shared connection. http://guacamole.apache.org/doc/guacamole-common/org/apache/guacamole/protocol/ConfiguredGuacamoleSocket.html#getConnectionID-- http://guacamole.apache.org/doc/guacamole-common/org/apache/guacamole/protocol/GuacamoleConfiguration.html#setConnectionID-java.lang.String- Note that this ID has nothing to do with database IDs or the more generic concept of identifiers in the extension API. It's purely a Guacamole protocol concept, used by guacd to uniquely identify active connections so they can be joined. You can see this covered briefly here: http://guacamole.apache.org/doc/gug/guacamole-protocol.html#guacamole-protocol-handshake - Mike
