We use API to create Droplet from snapshot, most of time we get Droplets done in 10-20 mins, but sometimes it could take hours!!.
API v2 allows to retrieve Droplet status via action id, we can check the status say after 30mins, but if it is still ‘in-progress’, we don’t want to keep checking its status because we don’t know when it will be done. If this case, how can we stop the creation request so this “new” droplet will be auto-destroyed when it is done, or the creation process will be killed by DigitalOcean?
