Local deployment of custom balenaOS image


I have a custom balenaOS image that I’d like to test locally. I can compile the image. Is there a way to configure that image so that it works like it does when it’s downloaded from BalenaCloud (i.e. add a device to an application, include wifi settings)? Basically, how do I edit the image and flash so that it’s already provisioned and automatically connects to my application?



Hey Andrew, I think this is what you are in need of for loading the Application:

The WiFi settings can be set with a small file in the boot partition, as described here: Network Setup on balenaOS 2.x - Balena Documentation

Hope that helps!

Thanks @dtischler, I think that covers the functionality I need.
