Onboarding our application and Azure extensions


I'm looking to onboard my company's application on the Azure Marketplace. The application embeds a configuration wizard which is reachable through SSH. The issue I have is that we are using default credentials, and the onboarding team does not want to validate it because of that.

Our application is designed in a way which makes difficult to get rid of this default credentials. So what I have looked into, is the possbility to use the Azure Custom Script Extension to run a script which would match the user id who would be created through the Azure console and agent and the default one.

My question is, is there a way to automatically run extension for a Marketplace deployment ? Or is there a way to hook the waagent ?

many thanks for the precious help you could bring.
