Bug Description

I've had a request to report a feature request to allow Landscape to run a script on a new Landscape client upon registration of said client to Landscape. Their example would be to install a package from a repository outside of Landscape and outside of Ubuntu. Also, the client is not getting any repositories from Landscape as well.

It could be controlled with tags. If a client connects with a foobar tag, have it run the foobar installation script. The timing is not a factor; a several minute delay is acceptable. They just want to remove the Landscape administrator interaction.

I have also been requested to ask for this feature. Basically looking to run a set of "deployment" scripts upon registration to the landscape-server.

In the case where this was discussed, the recommendation provided was to use the Landscape API to both accept the pending registration and also loop through the list of desired scripts to be run.

However, a mechanism to select a set of script to be run following registration would be ideal.
