Question

How do I create a Space using the Digital Ocean API?

In the Digital Ocean API reference I see information on creating a CDN endpoint, but not for actually creating a Space (Object Storage Solution). Is this the same thing? If not, can someone point me to the correct documentation? Thanks!

I think you are better of using the Amazon S3 SDK https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/spaces/resources/s3-sdk-examples/ .

They do show at https://docs.digitalocean.com/reference/api/spaces-api/ how a bucket using a put request winds up being:

PUT / HTTP/1.1

Host: static-images.nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com
x-amz-acl: public-read
x-amz-content-sha256: c6f1fc479f5f690c443b73a258aacc06ddad09eca0b001e9640ff2cd56fe5710
x-amz-date: 20170710T173143Z
Authorization: AWS4-HMAC-SHA256 Credential=II5JDQBAN3JYM4DNEB6C/20170710/nyc3/s3/aws4_request,SignedHeaders=host;x-amz-acl;x-amz-content-sha256;x-amz-date,Signature=6cab03bef74a80a0441ab7fd33c829a2cdb46bba07e82da518cdb78ac238fda5

<CreateBucketConfiguration>
  <LocationConstraint>nyc3</LocationConstraint>
</CreateBucketConfiguration>

but they do not show/have doctl commands for spaces https://docs.digitalocean.com/reference/doctl/reference/

Seems as Spaces is compatible with S3 you should use their SDK for Spaces.
