Can i suppress the email getting sent from the droplet create via the API

So here’s my problem, i have looked around and can’t seem to find a solution to it, or i may just be googling the wrong terms.

I’m trying to setup droplet creation via the API and i’m using the user-date( cloud-config ) to run command’s. But no matter what i try and do the email associated with the account gets and email saying that the droplet is ready and the root password is “blah”.

So my question is how do i suppress that email so that the email does not get sent to the associated email with that account.

I know i could attach an SSH key but I’m trying to avoid attaching a Key via the API to the account in question.


As far as my knowledge goes, this, at present is not possible. Either you use SSH-Keys so no mail is shot or be ready for this mail with a root password.

Hi @asb I don’t know how to post a new question, so I’ll just post mine here.

I can’t open my PostgreSQL remotely using PgAdmin. Kindly see the image link below for the prompt.

I’ve already did this to iptables and the postgre is running fine. iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 5432 -j ACCEPT iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 5432 -j ACCEPT

see the image link for the result of iptables -L

@saurabh is correct. There isn’t currently any way to suppress the root password mail except for adding a SSH key.
