Is possible to move from Balena Cloud to Open Balena ?

Thanks in advance for the response.

Hi, yes, we designed the newer OS versions to be capable to transition between cloud instances. Under the hood this is done by the os-config tool (https://github.com/balena-os/os-config).

Our CLI exposes an interface towards this: https://github.com/balena-io/balena-cli/blob/master/lib/actions/join.ts

I will ping our team for documentation update, since I do not see the join command listed in our autogenerated CLI docs.

Edit: the command is now listed in our docs properly: https://www.balena.io/docs/reference/cli/#join-deviceip-

Is it also possible to preload a device with a openBalena url? Or short of that is there a build parameter so you could make an image with your own URL?

Nevermind I saw if you preload an application it also associates with the open Balena instance if you are signed into the openBalena server.
