Cloud-init version 18.3.39 adds jinja template support for user-data scripts and cloud config. As part of this feature, any cloud metadata crawled by cloud-init is presented as template variables. Any cloud-provided metadata such as ip addresses, hostname, region, availability_zone can be referenced in user-data cloud config or scripts without having to crawl and parse metadata in separate tooling.
Since cloud-init generalizes some of this instance metadata across all clouds, it now allows user-data to be more flexible when deploying to different cloud platforms. See Using instance metadata for more information.
Below are commits landed in upstream cloud-init project since the last dev-summary
