  1. Expand Cloud Firewall functionality

    Add support for rule ordering (I want to block connections to all or specific ports for one host above allowing all other hosts). Add support for custom ICMP types (I only want to allow echo-replies).

    • East Indonesia Datacenter

      Hello everyone,

      I think East Indonesia should be advanced like West Indonesia. This is because Jakarta is full of population, making the environment bad. To facilitate transmigration, Indonesian government make an action, Gerakan 1000 Startup Digital/1000 Digital Startup Action. This action, however struggling with connectivity issue. By this, the gov started the Palapa Ring project. And to remove this barrier, I think you should build datacenter (at least 2) in the East Indonesia. This is based of the theory that more far away from the datacenter, the slower speed will get. I think the East Indonesia potential to be a…

      • Attach Block Storage Volumes to Multiple Droplets

        Great thing you've done with block storage, most impressive and very useful. In the future if one block storage volume could be seen and used by multiple Droplets, it would make life sooooo much better and easier, to share install files, user files, possible backup images and much more between droplets. Great work DigitalOceanTeam!

        • Add "User data" and "Monitoring" settings to the Droplet's "Destroy" page :)

          Hello! When user creates droplet, there are selectable additional options:
          * Private networking
          * Backups
          * IPv6
          * User data
          * Monitoring

          First 3 are editeable after creating droplet, but if you choose rebuild droplet from image, last 2 options would be nice feature to have.

              Currently the Graphs do not display disk utilization for attached volumes. This should be added.

              • allow Floating IPs to point to load balancers

                This would allow me to scale an app seamlessly in real time, instead of needing to carefully time it against DNS cache latency.

                After playing around with the new Load Balancers for a bit, It seems like an obvious extension. By the way, I'm really pleased with the feature. It seems very polished.

                  • Test Slack Integration for Monitoring

                    It would be helpful to be able to send a test message via the Slack integration for monitoring so that we could ensure that notifications are working.

                      • Isolated VMS from External DigitalOcean Network.

                        Put VM into "Protected Mode" by ticking an option from creation panel.
                        So, default port 22 (SSH) would only accept connection from localhost or console log and can only disabled on vm panel setting after creation process completed.
                        Most of OS template doesn't have Fail2ban service installed by default.
                        I suggest this because after installed the fail2ban service, it's detect many failure signin attempt from ssh port, mostly from China region, thank you.

                          • Load balancer HTTPS health checks

                            The health check does not support HTTPS.

                            The load balancer health check supports TCP ports and HTTP service but not HTTPS.

                            In my case, all http traffic is denied or redirected with a 301 to HTTPS, so the load balancer always gets a 301 and assumes the server is okay even if the HTTPS request responds with a 500.

                            • 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…

                                • Adjustable or increased TTL for PTR records

                                  Currently the TTL for PTR records is set at 30 minutes and is not adjustable. This has caused a block from SORBs on mail servers as they recommend a minimum of 24 hours for the PTR TTL. I am suggesting that the TTL for PTR records either become adjustable by the user or increased to 24 hours.

                                        • 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.
