OMG I believe this is resolved.
(a) Apparently, using JXplorer is entirely unnecessary(??!?!?) Half way down in the documentation at
is this directive:
Managing data associated with people can be performed in both oxTrust, the admin GUI, as well as LDAP. To manage people in oxTrust, navigate to User > Manage People.
From this interface you can add and search users.
So we merely created our via the gluu authentication server https://test.gluu.org/identity/person/addPerson.htm
And we can VIEW our users via JXplorer too.
(b) Nevertheless thanks for creating the youtube info. That helped us find the solution.
