The image for this droplet does not use root passwords, please use an SSH key

I’m trying to create a coreos instance via API like this , however I’m getting error response as per the subject and I’m not quite sure why as I am indeed passing my DO ssh_key_id in the POST-ed json.

Anyone ideas ?

Bingo! That was it. Incorrect SSH key id! The error message is utterly confusing imho…Thanks!
