API Resources


Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {GROUP-ID} is the same as your project id. For existing groups, your group/project id remains the same. This page uses the more familiar term group. The endpoints are as stated on the page.

The Atlas API provides the resources listed here. The resources give programmatic access to Atlas’s features. For information on the API’s principles and conventions, see API.
