Will it be possible to tag apps?

Hey there,

The DigitalOcean ecosystem offers an awesome system of tags to manage resources: droplets, databases, load balancers, firewalls, …

Do you plan on adding tags support on the brand new product “Apps”?

My use case is that I have an API hosted on droplets, which accept inbound traffic based on a tag.

What I’d like to do is to deploy an SSR app that could connect to that API, by tagging the app, so that the DO firewall grants the app access to the API.

Do you think it will be possible in a near future?

Thank you! Ben

Hello Ben,

Currently, we don’t have this in our roadmap. We don’t support VPC in App Platform so connecting to other DO resources using tags is something we have not discussed internally yet.
