Question

How can I verify if a Floating IP is created, I need an ID or something deterministic to identify it.

I’m developing an Ansible module to manage Floating IPs, (that can be) assigned to a droplet from a pool of “gates”. My problem is when I run the playbook again how can I know if there is already any Floating IP assigned to one of the droplets in that pool? Tags only support “droplets” type, at least is what is documented https://developers.digitalocean.com/documentation/v2/#tag-a-resource

The only method currently supported by the API for checking whether there exists a floating IP assigned to a given droplet is to iterate over all floating IPs in the account (which won’t take long; normal accounts can only have three floating IPs at once) and see if the droplet field on any of them equals the droplet in question.
