I have some script to be run for every VM launching in my cloud. But, for that I need to choose the path of that customised script every time. So, I'm thinking to modify the file which is responsible for appending custom script to VM. I guess the file path is: /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/dashboards/project/instances/workflows/

If it's a wrong path please update me with proper path to be modified. Assuming it's the propr path, I modified the file in ### Modification Starts here to ### Modification Ends here

Please suggest me how to properly make the task.

                    "instance has been built (max 16kb).")
