Add droplet by API to LoadBalancer return error

I tried this command ( the token and the dropletids has been edited)

curl -X POST
-H “Content-Type: application/json”
-H “Authorization: Bearer aaaaaaaaaaa”
-d ‘{“droplet_ids”: [327455XXX,327455XXX]}’

But always return {“id”:“unprocessable_entity”,“message”:“only one target identifier (e.g. tag, droplets) can be specified”,“request_id”:“436541b0-7f36-4eb4-8c00-c05fae5c0693”}

I had this code working for more than 2 years but since 2 months doesnt work (I also changed the old token for a new one… with the new token I can create droplets or delete it but not add to the LoadBalancer)

Hi @sergiob5ce772fe6d9daca9c85,

By checking the Api DOCS:

I’ve seen the request should be like this:

  1. curl -X POST \
  2. -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  3. -H "Authorization: Bearer $DIGITALOCEAN_TOKEN" \
  4. -d '{"droplet_ids": [3164446, 3164447]}' \
  5. ""

and the post request to be for{lb_id}/droplets.

Is it possible you’ve provided the wrong LB_ID in your post request?

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu After 2 hours… I see that LoadBalancer has configured a TAG… xD

Another question, how change the tag of LB ?
