How can I transfer a droplet between the teams?

How can I transfer a droplet between the teams within the same accounts without change of IP address?

All of the above plus:

I have a droplet (personal account) and my dev partner has another droplet (also personal account) in the same datacenter.

What I’d like is to create a team and move my droplet and his droplet to this team without changing IPs or other hassle, it should be straightforward from the admin panel to move droplets between accounts/teams.

Is this going to be supported anytime soon or we have to change configs all over the place and put the machines down for hours?

+1 for this feature. I tried to do something like this thinking it would be available so I searched for it but realized it is not an option yet, sounds very intuitive to me.

This would be extremely valuable for us as well, especially in the case of spaces

I agree that this would be a very nice feature. Like others have mentioned, I have a server on my account for a client that I would like to transfer to a team for individualized billing. Setting up a new server with a new IP would require a lot of updates for various implementations.

I recently created a team and now I wish to transfer several droplets into the team as different teams need to have different access levels.

I think the key takeaway to consider is:

Given that a team’s roles are dynamic and can change overtime, shouldn’t droplets be able to change teams as well?

A lot of brilliant use cases have already been presented above.

I think that in order for permission systems to be effective, a group within a system needs the ability to be flexible as to a.) it’s members and b.) it’s assets.

I think the DO team got the members part down pat and it would be really nice to have the assets (droplets) part in place as well.

If I were to take UNIX file permissions as an example, it’s great that I can add/remove users from groups and edit permissions per group but I think it would be very tedious if I’d have to recreate a file just to change it’s group.

Nonetheless, thank you DO team and love your excellent platform!

Another option could be to simply allow for droplets to be grouped under tags or folders, and then have the option to group these into individual invoices. The invoicing issue is probably often the reason people need teams, more than the actual authentication thing, so this could solve it for those that just needs to separate invoices.

Same for me, I have to group my droplets under individual teams in order to get separate invoices. I need to pass the invoices on, and each client should pay for only their droplets. Please make it possibme to transfer between teams without the hassle of rebuilding from a snapshot and getting new IP (I can live with getting a new IP is I must), but don’t like to have to destroy and recreate each droplet.
