  1. Hide billing details from certain users

    I think Digital Ocean teams is a great feature, but I'd like to see one small addition. As a sole freelancer, I would like to allow clients access to their droplets in the event something happens to me. And I can do this by setting up a Team for every client.

    However, I'd like to keep their billing details only visible to me, since I'd be charging them for hosting.

        • Add "Notify me when this droplet feels unhappy" feature (aka single click to enable default alerts)

          The custom alerts policies that can be created work great yet require lot of manual labor.

          I'd love to have a single click feature that will create "default" alert policies for CPU, Memory, Disk Space so that when I create a droplet, I'll just single click to get notified when anything bad is happening.

            • Publish all DigitalOcean IP ranges

              I am currently being targeted by a small botnet intent on disrupting network availability. Your network is currently participating in this botnet (among many others). I wish to block all connections from DigitalOcean on my server. Please publish all IP ranges that currently belong to DO.

              • Rails 5 on 16.04 One Click App Guide

                Deploying a Rails 5 application on either of Rails' One Click Apps is a hassle on Digital Ocean. The lack of official/community guides makes this much harder.

                • Allow prebuilt disk Images (QCOW/RAW/OVA) for upload

                  It would be good to have an option to use my own disk image and create droplets using that.

                  • Make droplet create even faster

                    First off, your current boot times 40-60 sec is industry leading and really great.

                    I was testing hyper.sh which has insanely fast boot times but for Docker containers, and it got me thinking. What if DO could provision VMs this fast?

                    I have workloads that I would consider adding to DO if the boot speed was faster. Are there any tricks left to speed up droplet creation? For example:

                    1. Pre-create VMs and have them sitting idle waiting for final provision
                    2. Hypervisor changes
                    3. Hardware changes (NVMe / RAM stored boot volume)
                    4. Extra resource allocation during boot to…

                    • Pushover Notifications for DO Agent

                      Instead of email / slack, an integration with Pushover would be legit. I currently use this app for several different things and this would be a great addition!

                      • ICMP reject ports that DigitalOcean blocks on IPv6 (avoid SMTP timeouts)

                        DigitalOcean blocks some outgoing IPv6 connections (SMTP, notably: https://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/7190053-allow-smtp-over-ipv6).

                        Right now packets are simply dropped. This causes timeouts.

                        I'd suggest you guys reject with ICMP administrative packet, so there are no timeouts (and, as a bonus, we know what's going on).

                        Workaround to do this locally on each VM:
                        ip6tables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m multiport --dports 25,109,110,143,465,587,993,995 -j REJECT --reject-with adm-prohibited -m comment --comment "Avoid timeouts on ports blocked by DigitalOcean"

                        • Document which ports are blocked on IPv6 (like SMTP)

                          Right now DO blocking is only sparsely documented (some forum threads, https://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/7190053-allow-smtp-over-ipv6, ... or user's own blog posts).

                          This causes long debugging runs when trying to figure out why SMTP does not work by default... Until one starts thinking that Digital Ocean itself is the blocker and finds the blog posts :(

                          DigitalOcean should clearly document blocking choices: the service is otherwise very good and upfront, this really is a sore spot.

                          I propose we get the warning in the Droplet's networking page.

                            Would like a VM with 3 interfaces, external, DMZ and internal so it can connect internal servers and DMZ servers. All outbound connections go through the external network interface.

                                  • Disable droplet creation notification

                                    There is many way to create droplet.

                                    It will be useful to disable mail notification for creation.

                                    We have two use cases :

                                    > Droplet is created by our action
                                    > An action automatically trigger create a droplet (for example, adding a droplet behind a load balancer because a monitoring system ask it).

                                    For the first case, it could be useful to disable email notification (as we already know that we are creating a droplet).

                                    But I think (email) notification should be the default behavior.

                                        • Make image ID of snapshots available from dashboard

                                          Using tools such as Packer and Terraform, you can create an image (as a snapshot) and deploy it. Private snapshots can only be deployed by image, not slug. This presents a problem when trying to search for an image ID to use for deployment. Make the image ID available from the dashboard to facilitate uses like this.
