If your SFTP username and password matches your Guacamole username/password
(e.g. you're using LDAP authentication), then you can use the tokens
${GUAC_USERNAME} and ${GUAC_PASSWORD} in the username and password fields
for the SFTP configuration, and these values will be forwarded from
Guacmaole through to the SFTP configuration.

Support for prompting for parameters is in the works, but not yet
