I configured the load balancer, but there is a need to appeal to one of the Droplet, for example putting in the request Cookies. Can it be done?

I need to tell the load balancer to send this particular request to a specific Droplet

As of right now, there’s no way to specify which requests go to a specific server in the cluster if you’re using the managed LB service provided by DigitalOcean. You’d have more flexibility using NGINX as a load balancer and rolling your own, though you would be responsible for managing it and setting it up.
