Delete One Data Lake


The Atlas Data Lake is available as a Beta feature. The product and the corresponding documentation may change at any time during the Beta stage. For support, see Atlas Support.


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 a programmatic API public key and corresponding private key as the username and password when constructing the HTTP request.

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