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. The resource and corresponding endpoints use the term groups.

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.
