To allow Cleaver to use your DigitalOcean account so that it can create and administer new servers, you first need to add an access token from your DigitalOcean account to Cleaver. This is one time thing and don't have to do it again unless you revoked or edited the access token.


  1. Go to and click Generate New Token button.

  2. On the modal box that appears, provide a name for this token; something that you could remember later, such as Awesome Cleaver.

  3. Make sure that both Read and Write scopes are selected. Cleaver will not be able to provision a server for you without the Write permission.

  4. Click Generate Token button.

  5. Copy the access token, switch to Cleaver app, and select Providers menu from the sidebar.

  6. Click the Add New Provider button.

  7. Once on the Add New Provider page make sure to select DigitalOcean tab.

  8. PROFILE NAME: The name of this profile. If you have multiple providers and/or profiles, this name is going to be important when creating a new server.

  9. ACCESS TOKEN: The token that you copied from DigitalOcean in step 5.

  10. Once you are done, click the Add button.

Cleaver will verify your token with DigitalOcean and if everything goes well, you should see your new token name listed on the Providers page. And in case you were wondering, the access token is saved in your keyring.

If things are still not clear, or if you are having an issue, please send us an email. In the meantime, watch the following clip that shows how to add a DigitalOcean access token.
