Hi, I am using NoCloudConfigDrive metadata service for gathering information like password, hostname,... from user-data and meta-data files mounted into the VM and exposing them to a lot of plugins.

In my use case, I may want to change user password , VM hostname or somethings like that. So, It's best for me to apply these changes into the user-data and meta-data files and whenever the VM rebooted, cloudbase-init check the changes and apply them again.

I find out that if I change the value of instance-id in meta-data file, all of the plugins that mentioned in cloudbase-init configuration file will re-executed. But I don't like to change the instance-id due to my use case.

Is there any another way to re-execute plugins per VM boot ?

If cloudbase-init does not find any instance-id, it will re-execute the plugins on every boot.

Thank you,
