Is it possible to enable user-data after droplet creation?

@shivab You can access it using curl http://169.254.169.254/metadata/v1/user-data Check out the docs on the metadata service.

More importantly, I really want to store the discovery URL that I generated. Is the “user-data” stored somewhere so I can have easy access while trying to add a new machine to my cluster?

Yeah, this sucks. Is there a feature request for this? Tweaking a script is going to be quite cumbersome with this workflow. And if any little thing changes requiring a tweak to the script, we have to destroy the droplet. Not good.

You can’t add cloud-config to an existing droplet. Just destroy it and create a new droplet with your user-data.
