Delete a Managed Namespace

Note

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 and API 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.

Delete a managed namespace for a Global Cluster. Deleting a managed namespace does not delete the collection associated with the namespace. Use the Data Explorer to delete both the collection and the managed namespace. Alternatively, use this endpoint to delete the managed namespace and the mongo shell to delete the collection.

Note

Deleting a managed namespace does not unshard the associated collection.

For more information about managed namespaces, see Global Clusters.

Syntax

DELETE /groups/{GROUP-ID}/clusters/{CLUSTER-NAME}/globalWrites/managedNamespaces

Request Path Parameters

Path Element Required/Optional Description
GROUP-ID Required. The unique identifier for the project that contains the Global Cluster.
CLUSTER-NAME Required. The name of the Global Cluster.

Request Query Parameters

Name Type Description
collection string The name of the collection associated with the managed namespace.
db string The name of the database containing the collection.

Request Body Parameters

This endpoint does not use HTTP request body parameters.

HTTP Response Elements

Name Type Description
customZoneMapping document A comma-separated list of all custom zone mappings defined for the Global Cluster. Atlas automatically maps each location code to the closest geographical zone. Custom zone mappings allow administrators to override these automatic mappings. If your Global Cluster does not have any custom zone mappings, this document is empty.
managedNamespaces array of documents Each document specifies a namespace for a Global Cluster managed by Atlas.
managedNamespaces[n].collection string The name of the collection associated with the managed namespace.
managedNamespaces[n].customShardKey string The custom shard key for the collection. Global Clusters require a compound shard key consisting of a location field and a user-selected second key, the custom shard key.
managedNamespaces[n].db string The name of the database containing the collection.
