Using doctl (or DigitalOcean API), can we add an existing snapshot to another region?

I am trying to do as much of my DigitalOcean interactions as I can using the doctl command line utility. While I can create a snapshot using doctl, I realized I had to go to the UI to add the created snapshot to a new region.

Is there any way I can do it using the doctl command line? How about using the API?

You can do that with the doctl compute image-action transfer command. For a bit more detail, add --help to the end of that command.

The raw API call is described here in our API documentation.

Fantastic! Worked like a charm
