The Gluu Server is not a desktop application–it is a single sign-on server. It is critical that the admin who deploys the Gluu Server not deploy any other software on this machine. Also, access to the Gluu Server should be locked down to only the most trusted network administrators. I don’t see a trust issue here–if you don’t trust the Gluu Server software, you shouldn’t be using it for SSO to all your applications.

I just want to make a point here… if you don’t trust Gluu, why are you using it to authenticate users for all your applications??? We don’t need to hack your linux workstation… we have access to your user passwords!

We worked this out on IRC. In summary, since this snap had been uploaded to the store already, it couldn’t be pushed again, so ‘snapcraft release’ needed to be used instead. I also chatted with @degville for an improvement to since that is what @adrian-gluu was looking at and it didn’t say anything about ‘snapcraft release’.


@jdstrand we may need to enable block-device plugin for opendj, it checks available disk space (don’t know the frequency). Since we did not run it long enough I don’t know if it crashes while checking disk space.
