             Summary: Add support for session affinity within balancing groups
                 Key: GUACAMOLE-53
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GUACAMOLE-53
             Project: Guacamole
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: guacamole-auth-jdbc
            Reporter: Michael Jumper
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 0.9.10-incubating


When a user makes a connection to a balancing group, a least-used algorithm for choosing which
underlying connection is used. This is fine for the case where state need not be maintained
between connection attempts, but is disruptive when users will lose state or data if they
are not consistently routed to the same connection.

For example, if a user is using an RDP connection, their open applications will suddenly appear
to no longer be open after a reconnect, even though they continue to run on a different connection.

If balancing groups provide a "session affinity" option, then users could be consistently
routed to the same connection as long as their session is valid.
