Creating an App using the API

In addition to creating a Droplet from the Redash 1-Click App using the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API. As an example, to create a 4GB Redash Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You need to either save your API access token) to an environment variable or substitute it in the command below.

curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
         -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
        '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image": "redash-18-04"}' \

Getting Started After Deploying Redash

Once you created the Droplet, you should have a running Redash instance with everything you need to get started. Redash should be available using the server IP address. You should point your browser to this address.

The browser will show a quick setup screen to create your first admin user. Once you’ve done this, you can start using Redash.

There are some additional recommended setup steps, like setting up mail server, HTTPS, etc. See more details in our setup guide.
