Hello, @onurene22

To launch a new droplet based on a snapshot, you need to supply it’s ID for the image parameter:

curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
    -H 'Authorization: Bearer $TOKEN' -d \
    '{"name":"example.com","region":"nyc3","size":"512mb","image": 12345}' \
    "https://api.digitalocean.com/v2/droplets" 

I will recommend you to check our official documentation for the API:

https://developers.digitalocean.com/documentation/v2/#create-a-new-droplet

Also this was previously discussed in this question as well:

Hope this helps!
