FAQ DigitalOcean

I use digital ocean account as both my personal and professional server. I want to create a team and assign them privileges based on droplets. I was unable to find options for the same. Is this option even available on DO?

Same question here...how do you assign an existing droplet to a newly created team??

Do I need to power off the droplet, create a snapshot and create a new droplet from my new team's view? Wouldn't this give me a new IP address?? Same as transferring the snapshot to another user?

Or do I keep the IP if it's within my account and the team I created?

We've been working on an update to the team accounts feature of DigitalOcean which will allow users to join multiple teams.

We are doing an internal alpha test, followed by a customer invite beta test, and then it will hit GA. Most likely within the next 4-6 weeks.

Then you will be able to create multiple teams, for example one personal team, and one professional team, and then you can invite team members into each group. For the time being we won't have droplet level permissions inside of a team, but by creating two different teams you'll be able to segment which droplets different team members have access to.

  • Thanks for the infor. Eagerly waiting for the feature. :)

  • Does that mean existing droplets can be assigned to different teams?

    • You would need to create the new teams. Then power off the droplet, take a snapshot, and then transfer it to the other group.

Has there been any updates on this? I saw the comment by @Mosley where he mentions that assign droplets to different teams by creating a new team, powering off the droplet, taking a snapshot, and then transfer it to the other group. Can advise on the following?

1) How to you create multiple teams?
2) How do you assign a droplet to a group?

I searched for documentation but have been unable to find anything. Please advise. I work with multi developers and want to limit their access to keys and droplets.
