Get Custom DNS Configuration for Atlas Clusters on AWS


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.

Retrieve the custom DNS configuration of an Atlas project’s clusters deployed to AWS.

The Atlas API authenticates using HTTP Digest Authentication. Provide a programmatic API public key and corresponding private key as the username and password when constructing the HTTP request.

To learn how to configure API access for an Atlas project, see Configure Atlas API Access.

Base URL:

GET /groups/{GROUP-ID}/awsCustomDNS

Request Path Parameters

Parameter Required/Optional Description
GROUP-ID Required Unique identifier for the project.

Request Query Parameters

Name Type Description Default
envelope boolean

Indicates whether or not to wrap the response in an envelope.

Some API clients cannot access the HTTP response headers or status code. To remediate this, set envelope=true in the query.

For endpoints that return one result, response body includes:

status HTTP response code
envelope The expected response body

For endpoints that return a list of results, the results object is an envelope. Atlas adds the status field to the response body.


Request Body Parameters

This endpoint does not use HTTP request body parameters.


Field Type Description
enabled boolean

Indicates whether the project’s clusters deployed to AWS use custom DNS.

If true, the Get All Clusters and Get One Cluster endpoints return the connectionStrings.private and connectionStrings.privateSrv fields for clusters deployed to AWS.
