      Description

      In MEN-2314 we create a .deb package to easily install Mender. This will also be the main path for onboarding new users, using application updates (MEN-2363), so it needs to be very streamlined and easy. To make this easier, we here introduce support for a "wizard" for the most important configuration for attended installations.

      User value (why)

      • For new users to easily install Mender during onboarding

      Size (SP)

      • 40

      Acceptance criteria:

      • There is an interactive menu during attended installs of Mender client which asks for
        • server URL (https://hosted.mender.io is the default)
        • device type
        • whether to use demo or production settings (with one-line intro what this means: polling intervals & demo certificate)
      • If Hosted Mender is used, the user inputs his credentials and the TenantToken is obtained and stored in mender.conf automatically
      • Mender service is started after configuration is done
      • A short final message stating Mender has been started and will be available in server within a few minutes, with a link to the URL of the server's pending devices
      • Installation documentation updated (shortened)
