Re: A New Packaging Approach - CLI Tools Pushing Apps and the Story about the #loggregator “space drain” experiment #loggregator

Yeah. Currently the user name / password is simply passed into the app. I expect well at least implement a better hook into CUPS next and for user roles that can create users we could shell out and create a strong user-name password combo. This could be pretty elegant and allow for (automated) cred rotation. 

Sounds good.  Currently in my environment we disable user account creation instead using enterprise LDAP or OAuth.  Supporting internal users and external users isn't something I've considered in my deployments.  Might not be a problem.  Just not something I've considered before.
