On the first boot is there a way to skip all of the random password stuff and just have the user type in their password right at login?

I want to use meta data to set the "admin_pass": "ExamplePassword12345" on the first boot, but once I login I want to change my password. During the next shutdown / reboot I don't want the password set back to ExamplePassword12345.

Is there anyway to do this?

Is there a way to set no password with cloudbase init so I can just choose my password at first boot?

You can specify in the cloudbase-init.conf all the plugins you want cloudbase-init to run.

You need to exclude and cloudbaseinit.plugins.common.setuserpassword.SetUserPasswordPlugin
