Changes for a better API Integration

I have a hosting website in my country (Brazil) and I like to resell DigitalOcean VPS, giving myself the support needed to my customers. I’m working in a full integration with the Digital Ocean API (that is very simple to use) but one thing that give me some problems is that the root password is only sent by e-mail. I’ll be nice if the api return the root password in some way (when create the droplet) or may be able to chang it without sending the new one via email.

I hope DigitalOcean developers think about it.

Generally it is a very bad idea to give out the password via API. <br> <br>Alternatively you can write a script that retrieves your root password emails, which would solve all your problems and allow you to move on with your project rather than wait for updates.

Hi, <br> <br>Thanks for the suggestion it has also been suggested in our UserVoice and we’ve been discussing it internally for some time now and I think we have a good method for integrating this into the current flow. <br> <br>When it is integrated it will appear in the response from the API during the create call. <br> <br>If it goes smooth should be ready in 1-2 days otherwise later next week. =] <br> <br>Thanks
