Allow for placeholder variables in IoT Edge deployment templates
I am looking to have a configured deployment for Azure IoT Edge that automatically gets applied, based on the configured tags for a new IoT Edge device.
That works perfectly (modules are being set, routes are defined, module twins are configured)
However, I’d like to leverage a concept like ‘placeholder values’ that I can override on edge device level.
For example: I might have 5 different devices, all using the same deployment, but inside one of their module, I need to set a specific Environment Variable, or update a value in their desired properties (of the module twin). Once creating a new edge device, I'd like to have those placeholder variables to be overwritten by the value I can set (in the device twin?)
As far as I see, this is not yet possible? Can someone confirm this, or come with an alternative solution ?
We see the value in the feature; however there is no easy way to do this at the moment.
