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.

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:
