Get All Organization Events

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.

boolean
Optional

Flag that indicates whether Atlas wraps 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.

Endpoints that return a list of results use the results object as an envelope. Atlas adds the status parameter to the response body.

Cluster on which the events occurred. To return events from multiple clusters, specify multiple clusterNames query parameters. For example:

<Request URL>?clusterNames=Cluster1&clusterNames=Cluster2
