Hi @gopimdvk,

I dug into this after seeing your question here, and unfortunately it looks like a bug in python-digitalocean.

I’ve proposed a fix here:

https://github.com/koalalorenzo/python-digitalocean/pull/316

If you are blocked on this, here’s an example of how to add a Droplet to a load balancer using python-requests directly:

import os
import json
import requests

token = os.getenv('DO_TOKEN')
api_base = 'https://api.digitalocean.com/v2'
lb_id = "aaa-111-bbb-222-ccc"
droplet_id = 123456

payload = {'droplet_ids': [droplet_id]}
headers = {'Authorization': 'Bearer {0}'.format(token),
           'Content-type': 'application/json'}
url = api_base + "/load_balancers/{0}/droplets".format(lb_id)
r = requests.post(url, headers=headers,  data=json.dumps(payload))

r.raise_for_status()
