I have a suggestion. I am using up ansible play books to provision servers on demand. One issue with ansible and digital ocean is the ssh fingerprint of the new server. It is possible to work around the new finger print prompt in ansible. Wwhat I found to be problematic was if an IP address was reused (as happened when testing). SSH failed and the play book halted. If you could modify your creation api to provide the new server’s fingerprint it would be easy to spin up and provision a new server adding it to the known hosts file.
