Can I get my root password through the Digital Ocean API instead of email?

I'd like to create, manage and delete droplets - all from my Java app and without human intervention. Seems possible except for the step requiring the root access: is there a way to get the credentials programmatically, not by email?

You can setup ssh keys in your droplets. No email will be sent to you with root password and can login with the key password.

Please add in your API this option - email


New Droplet

my_email - email address

On email send root password

This very good!
