User Data
  • User data can be used to perform common automated configuration tasks and even run scripts after the instance starts.
  • In computing, a bootstrap loader is the first piece of code that runs when a machine starts.
  • It is not very secure as anyone who has access to the operating system can have access to the User Data, so you shouldn't use it for storing anything sensitive or personal, like passwords.
