No, the Guacamole API is pretty strict with respect to scope and separation
of concerns. Exposing the connection ID, if at all, would be an
implementation detail of the Guacamole-driven application. If possible, I
would recommend instead keeping that ID purely server-side, generating your
own opaque IDs for exposure on the client-side as you see fit. That way,
you will have full control of who can connect to what, and the flow of
information surrounding the creation of each connection.
