Creating droplets through API: Returning root password/define root password
Im working on an adminpanel for my business where I amongst other services run webservers for customers.
Ive managed to hook up to the API and are able to list out droplets and add new droplets based on the images I prefer.
My only problem right now is that when a server is created, I get the root password sent through email. Id like my adminpanel to generate an e-mail directly to the customer with the password.
Is there any way for the API to return the root password? Or can I define what root password I want the droplet to have?
Alternatively, can I automatically create a user with sudo access based on the customers name - and define that users password?
