Password option does not work in OVA images
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


In the OVF template, we have the password option, which should be used to configure the password for the vyos user.
During Cloud-init run this option is saved to the cloud-config, unlike other parameters from the OVF file, which goes directly to the metadata. So, to get a password, the cc_vyos module should check the cfg dict.
In the decb5d2 commit a way to add password-based authentication was changed to a per-user basis. And the cc_vyos now able to use only passwords from users' configurations.

Therefore, OVA builds after 2020-09-10 ignore the password field.
