I used SUSE Studio in the past to create a custom ISO. Now that avenue has gone, what’s the best (And easiest!) method of creating a customised (Packages and config files etc.) live installer ISO? Obviously, I do have installed running systems I could use as a ‘gold image’ to create said custom ISO from…
I’ve had a look at Studio Express but there doesn’t seem to be an option to create an ISO on that unless I’m missing something… It’s all containers and VMS etc… :\

Studio Express is a hosted Kiwi (basically), which can be used to create
ISOs - I haven’t played with that yet myself.
https://doc.opensuse.org/projects/kiwi/doc/ seems to cover it fairly
well, though. In fact, I’m going to have to bookmark that one myself.

I haven’t used kiwi for creating an ISO targeting x64 machines, but have used it creating JeOS Docker images, for 2 main reasons…
- I want to build something that is ultra-minimalist without anything unnecessary. You can’t typically do that with ordinary installations.
- The target platform is not typically specific to hardware and if what is often considered embedded hardware, then there is no usual installation and imaging is the standard method to set up the system.
I think OBS is the recommended replacement for Studio users, but my personal preference for setting up x64 machines is to run an installation script.
When you build an installation script, you can incorporate as much flexibility as you want, and you ordinarily don’t have to create new media every time something major changes… like a new openSUSE release, major application changes, more. If your code is modular, then you can modify as needed very quickly.
Although my personal preference is writing BASH scripts, openSUSE has plenty of custom tools you can use, too… like AutoYaST (there are several more but not occurring to me immediately).
If you are a very large shop, you should probably consider something like chef or puppet.
