Sure, and thank-you.

User will get access to devices in a lab based on a scheduled start/stop
time using our webUI.  All credentials and application functionality is
No real credentials should be stored in a guac database.
User is provided a one-time link to the device(s) at the start, which
should no longer work after the end.
No need to see the guac home page, but we can work with it if we can't

I have been able to meet the requirements using the mysql auth as follows:

1. Create a one-time username and password with an access time window
(start, end, valid_from, until)
2. Permission access group for this user_id (INSERT INTO
3. Permission individual links for this user_id (INSERT INTO
4. Generate URL per below for each individual connection
5. At the end of the session time (access_window_end), delete the user_id

Where this becomes the one-time link, embedded connection & auth:

Based on schedule, it won't work till start time, or after end time.
Username/password are one-time only use and only valid during the session.

If there's a better way, would be grateful to know what it is.
