What exactly do you mean by "pass user data" in this case? There are many ways of passing data. What are you trying to achieve?

What I am trying to do is, I am provisioning Windows Machine from vRA to AWS. Now I need to run some scripts at the time of machine provisioning so AWS provides a way to that you can put those commands as User Data and then when machine is created it will run those scripts.

Now there are ways like after machine creation I can use the username and password and then do the same but that I don’t want. I wanted to do the same using User Data so is there any way of achieving the same.

software component doesn’t work for me as Indont have any agent installed in the Amazon AMI.

What version of vRA are you running?  In 7.4 we made this available natively in the product. The blog article below outlines how to do it:
