As of right now, the only way you can automate this would be to use DigitalOcean’s API using either a programming language (your choice) or a combination of bash scripting and doctl, a CLI-based interface for the API.



For automation to work, you’d have to code your own solution that would check X, Y, Z and then do an action based on the results of said check.

Otherwise, the only solution would be to manually do this from the DigitalOcean Control Panel.
