Best way to autoconfigure routers and resist reset to factory defaults

I’m using Dan’s fork as well. I had to modify the message the GenieACS sends to include the event as well as the device_id as I wanted to do some different things for different events, and not need to set the login for all events.  The GenieACS sends the message to our own API, and from there I can find the device in my inventory database, match it up with the service details in the services database, and then create a couple setPrameterValues Tasks for that device, with a connection request, that will update the login on the device.

This is working well in my test environment so far, but I’m having problems with firmware not finding my ACS out of the box even with the ACS url built into the firmware.  Not an issue with the ACS, or dan’s fork, just a headache with the modem.

I use my notification patch for genie. That sends events like BOOT and BOOTSTRAP (first boot from factory reset) to my server. There I figure out what needs to be done to the cpe. My fork is at github/akcoder/genieacs

Good Morning!

I've been told that configuring presets in order to autoconfigure routers and resist a client's factory default action it's bad for GenieACS. So I want to change the way I'm doing it.

So my question is: What is the best way so all the routers of my company accomplish these 2 things:
    1) That when you connect the router to the ADSL or the WAN port it autoconfigures by itself
    2) When the client performs a factory default, it autoconfigures by itself with its own PPPoE login

I thank you in advance for all the advice given
