Thanks but this is not the behavior that I would like. I want to be able to create a droplet for my user (who is also a Digital Ocean user), based on a private snapshot, but I don’t want to transfer my snapshot to him permanently, and I want to automate it such that he only needs to enter his token to complete the action. Is this possible?

Yes. You can do that by transferring the snapshot to the other user’s account and then creating the droplet via the API.
