Simple URL to reboot droplet with API V2 ?

With the API V1 I used to be able to reboot a droplet simply by calling a url with the parameters in url, is that still possible to do in V2 ?

I can’t figure out what parameters to use from the documentation, even a simple php script that i could use to reboot a droplet would be very useful, if anyone can help ?

The documentation for “Reboot a Droplet” includes an example of a curl command for performing the action:

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
             -H "Authorization: Bearer b7d03a6947b217efb6f3ec3bd3504582" \
             -d '{"type":"reboot"}' \

Just replace the b7d03a... with your own API token, and replace 3164450 with the ID of the droplet that you want to reboot.
