Metadata

Metadata is the information that is exchanged between Pantavisor and the outside world, either remotely or locally, that is not attached to a revision itself.

Metadata is just a list of key-value pairs of string type.

Device metadata

This type of metadata is meant to be generated by Pantavisor or any of the running containers to expose internal information.

The list of device metadata is persistent on disk, can be managed locally by mgmt containers, and their values will be sent to the cloud in remote mode.

Check the list of default key-value pairs that Pantavisor sends.

User metadata

This type of metadata is meant to be generated by the user so Pantavisor or any of the containers can consume it.

The list of user metadata is persistent on disk, can be managed locally by mgmt containers. Their values will be deleted or overwritten by the list stored in the cloud in remote mode.

Check out the list of default user metadata consumed by Pantavisor.
