Usage

Each Cloud provider has its own way to handle user data parameters. Please follow these tutorials to learn how to use them:

The parameters can be set when creating the instance, in the Advanced details section at step 3 (Configure Instance):

Instance creation

Or when an existing instance is stopped, in Actions > Instance Settings > Edit user data:

Instance settings

You can then copy and paste your code, or import a file containing the code in JSON format.

The parameters can only be set from an existing instance when it is stopped:

  1. From the Allyun console, go to Elasctic Compute Service > Instances & Images > Instances
  2. Click on a stopped instance to access its details:

  3. Click on All Operations and select Set user data:

  4. Copy and paste your JSON code:

  5. Click Ok to apply the parameters.

The parameters can be set when creating the instance, in the Management > Metadata section:

  1. Click ADD ITEM

    Instance creation

  2. In the Key field, input the string genymotionConfig

  3. In the Value field, copy and paste your JSON code:
