I know. That's what I've been doing so far. My feature request was the ability to do this from the website as well - for convenience.
Ahh gotcha, that you can't do from the control panel but you could easily automate that through the API.
So you would just construct the API call and then issue it 100 times.
So I'm probably not doing a good job explaining what I'm trying to do. What I want is:
I click the Create button -> specify the source image -> type in the number of droplets I want to create (like: 100) -> press a single button that launches 100 droplets from that image.
I just talked to support and apparently it's not possible from the website.
Well there are some account limits in place, but yes, you can create as many servers from the same image as you like issuing the creates at the same time.
I don't understand. Can I create 1000 droplets in 2 seconds from the same image?
Yes, you can do that by just creating another create with the same image.
Is it possible from the website? I wasn't talking about the API.
This should already be possible so if you are having issues please let us know via a ticket.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
