Connect your account

danger

After the connection of your Digital Ocean account, ScaleDynamics will create and manage resources in your account. You should not modify, create, or delete these resources to avoid non deterministic behaviors of the ScaleDynamics platform. To interact with ScaleDynamics, please use only our SDK command lines or our console (http://console.scaledynamics.com).

To connect a Digital Ocean account, you need to get a token for a team/project.

Connect to Digital Ocean console

First, connect to Digital Ocean console using your credentials.

Optionnaly - Create a new team and a new project

To isolate the access rights of ScaleDynamics, we recommand to create a new team, and a new project that we will use to allocate infrastructure resources. You can also use an exisiting team/project if you want, and do the Create a token step.
