Submitting a VM offer to marketplace that needs custom data (cloud init) while launching RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been trying to understand the overall process of deployment of a VM after it gets published to Marketplace.

    Let's say I have a custom VM that I'm considering to publish to Marketplace. Am I able to provide an ARM template while sending the offer for certification, in order to provide custom data for deployment of that VM - like certain keys or license, that would be required in order to launch it? Like in the end, when someone tries to deploy a VM from the Marketplace, is there any way for them to provide those specific properties that they would obtain from us, or the only properties that can be supplied are the base VM properties like SSH keys and network configurations.

    (Ability to provide a whole custom data like cloud init also works. But from my understanding you can only do it from CLI)

    Eventually, the plan is to have the offer as BYOL VM.
