First go here: https://cloud.digitalocean.com/droplets

Click on the droplet.

Look in the URL of your droplet’s graph. The URL will contain: https://cloud.digitalocean.com/droplets/YOUR_DROPLET_ID_HERE/graphs

Also to find a droplet_id from the droplet you can:

curl -s http://169.254.169.254/metadata/v1/id

Are you able to log into your droplet via SSH or the VNC console? Rebooting your droplet via either of those two mediums is preferred over a “hard reboot” via the API. <br> <br>That said, if you log into your account => click the hyperlink to the droplet you’d like to reboot = the droplet ID will show up in the address bar of your browser.
