Create a Droplet from a snapshot using the snapshot's name instead of its id

I am trying to create a droplet using a previously created snapshot but I need to use the snapshot’s name instead of its id. Is that possible? If not, how can I automatically grab the snapshot id after listing all my snapshots, based on its name?

You can create a droplet from a snapshot and you should be able to use the snapshot’s name as well.

Once you’ve created the snapshot you can simply follow these steps:

  1. Click Create > Droplets.
  2. Click on Snapshots.
  3. Select the snapshot.
  4. Select the size, Droplet region and additional parameters.
  5. Click on Create.
