API: Resize options availability for each droplet

Posted November 3, 2014 2k views


I would like to follow-up on the unanswered comment on this question. I’ll just ask it again here:

We have noticed in the UI that it can “suggest” which size is available for fast-resize or if no option is available at all. For example, we have resized a 1Gb droplet to 2Gb droplet (which was the only option), then the UI had suggested another option - to downsize back to 1Gb. The other three droplets did not have any resizing options at all.

Can we do the same with the API? I.e. is there a relevant API call to get the sizing options for a specific droplet? We don’t see any extra information in the API droplet response object to indicate the resize possibilities.

Sorry for missing that comment! Unfortunately, there isn’t currently an API call to get that information. Though adding support for it is on the roadmap. You can subscribe to this GitHub issue to keep up to date on the progress.

Thanks for the feedback!
