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 uses HTTP Digest Authentication. Provide your Atlas username as the username and Atlas API key as the password as part of the HTTP request.

This endpoint requires that the Atlas user has the Owner role. To view the available Atlas users, click on Users & Teams in the left-hand navigation.

For complete documentation on configuring API access for an Atlas project, see Configure Atlas API Access.
