Hi All,
is there a way to pass/query Node meta data/user data information for ECS instances in Alibaba cloud? I could not find anything from the documentation.

Alibaba Cloud now has a document on ECS Instance Metadata:

Sorry we don't have such information, but I think the api and sdk in Alibaba cloud is similiar to your question.
Please check the part of API Reference and SDK Reference in the link below:

Meta data is data about your instance that you can use to configure or manage the running instance. For example amazon Aws provides user data facilty where you can specify parameters for configuring your instance, or attach a simple script. This makes deployment generic. For more examples here is a link from aws:

Sorry, I didn't get the point of your issue. What kind of data, can you describe in details? Or give us an example.
