How can I assign specific droplets to a team, or restrict access to some droplets for a team?

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?

This is very useful feature and DigitalOcean Team please take decision and Implement this.

Same issue here. Need to allow access to members based on projects.

Any update on this? This would be a great feature!

I have same need. I have a droplet with sensitive info on it I dont want all of my team having access to . How do I assign a team member to one droplet? Seems like this question has been open for over 2 years with no answer.

Any update on this? It would be a great feature and help with security!

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.

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.
