Question

API: Create a droplet for another user (oauth access) using an image/snapshot from my account?

I’m trying to create droplets for other accounts, through the API, that have given my application oauth access.

I want to use a snapshot or image that exists on my account - is that possible?

Hi there @CarterB,

Sorry for the delay in responding to you about this!

As far as I know, unfortunately, the image or snapshot you are using to create a new Droplet from would need to be on the same account as you are creating the Droplet on.

You are more than welcome to suggest this as an idea on our Product Ideas board which is periodically reviewed by our teams to decide what to work on next.
