I do indeed see the service with hidden network and I provide an agent with the correct
format. Looking at the code I actually managed to isolate all the hidden network and try
a connection on all of them. So this is actually now resolved. Thank you !

I'm trying do develop a small wrapper around connmam mostly using dbus and python.
Everything work fine yet.
Managing hidden network is a bit of an issue.
That is an understatement from my past experience.
The wrapper will be use in an environment where there will be a lot
of hidden network (not for security reason...)
and only the ssid Name will be known.
So how would one identity the right service to connect to ?
Using my wrapper I can already see hidden network path.
I already know that my agent will handle the ssid Name when a connection request is done.
Should I simply try connect to all of them ?
I haven't done anything for a while with hidden networks. The documentation says
Calling Connect() on a hidden WiFi service entry will
query the missing SSID via the Agent API causing a
WiFi service with the given SSID to be scanned,
created and connected.
IIRC, you should see a service for the hidden networks. Do you provide
an agent for ConnMan to call?
