Your feedback drives our design process. Your votes count! Let us know what you want to see from the DigitalOcean cloud.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. that not only the primary account e-mail receive e-mail notifications, please add more contact ways

    i.e. notify to multiple email accounts, webhook for Slack or any other alert app the customer is using for such important event. (for example we had a server rebooted but it was just notified to the account that gets billed not the actual devops team)

    • Add support for user-data on your bsd images

      With the current bsd-cloudinit support y'all get to configure the network/routing stuff, but users have to ssh to each droplet to bootstrap their own configurations. Personally I just need to install salt, drop its config and give it an ssh key to my git repo.

      As far as I can tell, the other choiec is paying for the storage of my own "base image" with a hacked version of bsd-cloudinit.

      A patch is already available, it just needs to be added to droplets by default:
      https://github.com/pellaeon/bsd-cloudinit/pull/26/commits/097cba1d89f4fa8e3c824df5d619234286fc0cb3

      It would be really nice to not have to hand-tune each instance as I…

      • Add swap usage as a monitoring metric

        Add swap usage as a monitoring metric (for linux based servers). Either number of swap pages in use, or perhaps swap rate.

        • Select/Add other email address for Monitoring Policies

          Currently, when you create new policy, you can only select your own email address or Connect to Slack.

          Since some or many people will have a team which they have created droplets, it would be good to include a field to add new email address or select the team email address to send the alert to, instead of only allowing the user to only choose their own email address.

          I am not sure if this feature is already planned. But i hope this can be added in. Thank you.

          • Pre-signed URLs AWS v4

            Currently Digital Ocean Spaces only support AWS v2 for pre-signed URLs, however, the majority of applications now days use v4. It is really important that v4 gets implemented because, on some frameworks such as Laravel it is not possible to use S3 and Force v2 pre-signed URLs which is really annoying.

            • Kubernetes One-Click App

              I would LOVE to have a one-click app or UI managed cluster (similar to GKE / Rancher / Stackpoint / etc) version of Kubernetes.

              • Make Spaces API as simple as possible without trying to mimic Amazon S3

                Make Spaces API as simple as possible without trying to mimic Amazon S3 for compatibility with existing libraries.
                One of the key reasons lots of developers do move to Digital Ocean from AWS is because its simplicity and modern-developer-oriented approach.
                Seeing xml responses instead of json and tons of ad-hoc headers was a punch in our face: we were excited while waiting Spaces to come out and we thought it was going to come out with some cool-yet-simple APIs like Digital Ocean's style.
                This is my team biased opinion.

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

                      • Attach billing invoices to email as a PDF

                        Currently, when Digital Ocean sends its monthly billing invoice via email it doesn't attach the invoice to the email. Instead it gives a link to access the invoice, which is hosted elsewhere. This is nonsensical because it causes unnecessary additional steps in our Accounts Payable process when we're attaching invoices to expense payments.

                        Most SaaS/IaaS providers (i.e. GSuite, AWS etc) attach their monthly invoice as a PDF within an email and DO NOT require the customer to access the invoice elsewhere via a link.

                        Our organisation would benefit greatly if the invoices are simply attached as a PDF in the…

                          Linode and Vultr already moved into this strategy to capture low budget developers.

                          • Reverse DNS for Foating IPv4 and IPv6 on DigitalOcean-supplied or Customer's Domains

                            DigitalOcean owns the IP blocks from which Floating IP addresses are allocated to droplets. It would be a benefit to the customer to automatically assign Reverse DNS records to the Floating IP addresses handed out. Mail Exchange servers, and any secure server are usually required to have Reverse DNS match Forward DNS, for security reasons.

                              So that it is "harder" to accidentally let your account go under from a credit card expiring, for instance, if it only ever lets your account go "down" to $10 or what not.

                                Kind of like how we can transfer droplets by taking a snapshot of them, but moving spaces to other accounts.

                                    As you have worldwide data centers and an anycast DNS service it would be great if you offer a GeoDNS service based on proximity.

                                      I really dislike Amazon's Lambda offerings for several reasons. I also haven't found a solution that isn't proprietary.

                                      DO changed the landscape with hosting and development. I think it would be remarkable if you did the same for 'serverless' computing and allowed for open and scalable Functions as a Service.

                                      Whaddya say?

                                        Support sending SysRq keys from the Digital Ocean console.

                                        I recently had an unresponsive droplet with high sys CPU%. I couldn't SSH in and the Digital Ocean console showed garbled output for some reason. I have my droplet configured for kernel cores and kernel.sysrq=1; however, there was no way to send SysRq+c to generate a vmcore and restart. After doing a hard reboot, there were no diagnostics in the system log to understand what happened. If I was able to send SysRq+${KEY} to my droplet from the Digital Ocean console, I would have been able to gather diagnostics.

                                        • So why my account status is closed?

                                          And I pay a $5 bill yesterday, and now may account status is also "Will be Reviewed". It's not fair, why the pay process is so fast, but my account status is also not be reviewed?
