cloud-run-instances man page
cloud-run-instances — wrapper for euca-run-instances that supports an option for injecting public ssh keys retrievable from Launchpad.net
cloud-run-instances [-l|--launchpad-id lp_id_1,lp_id_2,lp_id_3] [euca-run-instances options]
This program is a wrapper script for euca-run-instances(1) that takes one additional option, -l|--launchpad-id.
With this option, a user can specify a comma-separated list of Launchpad.net usernames.
Once the instance is booted, the cloud-init boot script will retrieve the public ssh keys of the specified users from Launchpad.net using ssh-import-lp-id(1).
All other options besides -l|--launchpad-id are simply passed on to euca-run-instances(1).
