Before you deploy a VM, you can set guest variables to pass user data to your VMs. This functionality uses cloud-init and requires appropriate templates. In private cloud, the templates must have the guest setup flag set to cloud init. The administrator can add default variables for the VM template.

This functionality is available through the API. The platform stores variables in the VirtualMachine "variables" attribute, which is a dictionary of keys and values. See Update a virtual machine in VirtualMachinesResource

To add VM variables:

  1. Go to Virtual datacenters → edit a VM that is not deployed → Variables

  2. Enter each Key and Value and click Add

    Edit the VM to set variables that will be added to the VM at deploy time
