  1. 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!

    • Add HipChat to monitoring alert types.

      Our organization uses HipChat over slack. HipChat notifications would be really great.

      • Launch 1GB VPS for $5/month.

        • Name firewall rules

          I use the firewalls to block SSH from all but our employee IPs. However, those IPs change weekly, and I end up having to maintain a map and it's really confusing. I'd like to have a way to name them so I can easily update them.

          Different ways I've done this with traditional firewalls:
          • Create one SSH rule per person and name the rule
          • Create a named machine with an IP for each person, and add all those machines to the SSH rule

          Please please please let me know if this is something you can accommodate in the…

          • DNS subdomain delegation to a different team account/project

            Following use case:
            1. we have an production environment running an API at api.example.com, only some devops have access and api.example.com is defined in teamproject1
            2. we have a staging environment in teamproject2 with more devops having access rights and the domain ist stage.api.example.com.
            3. we manage both environments with terraform and ansible including domains.
            4. we need a subdomain delegation for *.stage.api.example.com from teamproject1 to teamproject2

            What could be done? Allow Subdomain delegation:

            1. create NS Records with ns1..3.do.com in teamproject1 for stage.api.example.com
            2. create rewquired ressource records in teamproject2 (A, MX , SRV, .....)

            Result at this moment: …

              A simple indication of a droplet's uptime would be useful.

              • Support Bring Your Own IP Space

                Currently Vultr supports the Bring your own IP Space feature: they provide either IP Address Advertisement or full (or default route) BGP. They provide the normal IPv4 and IPv6 addresses (used for peering) and also set up a BGP session from their AS to your server. This, combined with the private networking can really help. I know it's not a popular feature: it's unlikely that 99.9% of the customers will use it, but it's definitely a good-to-have. Even if it requires manual set up and is not automated.

                • DigitalOcean offers dollars instead of account credit or at least introduce some kind of converting system to reward their promoters.

                  DigitalOcean offers "account credit" to their promoters. What are we gonna do with the account credit? I mean there should be a proper way (dollars) to reward the promoters like most of the companies in the industry.
                  One of my affiliate accounts with DigitalOcean earns more than 400 account credits. Don't you think that it is hilarious to spend all those on just a single company?
                  My suggestion is that you should at least introduce some type of converting system like $5 account credit = 1$ if you cannot offer the commission in US dollars.

                  • Add the ability to rename Storage Volumes

                    We can rename droplets, but storage volumes are stuck at whatever they happened to be named on creation.

                    Having the ability to change the name would be nice for organization. I have a droplet named volume-sfo2-## and keep forgetting what I am using it for.

                    • Use a normal payment processor and take my debit card.

                      Your system will not let me use my debit card, you will only accept me if i get into debt with a credit card, or if i pay the highest commissions in the world by using paypal. Bad deal.

                      • IPv6 for load balancers

                        So far, load balancers only get an IPv4 and no IPv6.

                        In practice, this means that load balancers cannot be used if you want to provide IPv6 connectivity.

                        I would love to use this feature, but only if IPv6 was made available.

                        • Add webhooks to monitoring

                          It would be great if the new monitoring service also had webhooks. This would make it significantly easier for our orchestration service to respond to events and take action.

                            • Firewall Source Tables

                              Allow the creation of external sources as a kind of Table, like OpenBSD's pf, so that you can 'allow from friends', or 'allow from my external netblock'. Currently, if you need to allow access to multiple ports, you'd be typing in these IPs manually for each rule, then changing these in all affected rules later on is a pain. If your external source IPs could be grouped in the same way that tags group droplets, it would be trivial for the user to apply these groups to multiple rules and update that group across all rules in the future.

                              • Allow filters to apply to the /v2/actions API

                                I'd like to be able to track account actions over time. This reads like "poll the list of actions reported by /v2/actions, consuming those that are 'new' on each iteration". As of now, that means that I'll have to consume the (paginated) actions list *every time* I poll the API. It's up to me to keep track of which actions I've already seen and only record the new ones.

                                My preference would be to provide a filter "I last checked the actions API at epoch time <X>" and receive *only* actions that have occurred since then.

                                • Port the DigitalOcean Agent to Fedora, CoreOS and FreeBSD

                                  Currently the DigitalOcean Agent only supports Ubuntu 14.04 and higher, CentOS 6 and higher, and Debian 8.

                                  I suggest that DigitalOcean ports the Agent to cover the other 3 offerings of Fedora, CoreOS and FreeBSD.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Allow us to enter hostnames as sources on the firewall

                                      I have a dynamic IP at home with a hostname pointed to it. When that IP changes I'd only have to update the DNS entry instead of all firewall rules, like my SSH and phpMyAdmin rules.

                                        • show which droplets are actually being monitored

                                          On the new monitoring pages, highlight (green, orange, red) the droplet's associated with a monitor to show that it is actually being monitored.

                                          A lot of my droplets where here before the monitoring, and I've not actually installed the agent. I would have been prompted to install it is there was a visual queue that it wasn't installed ;)
