Delete an Entry from the Project IP Access List

Important With Circle IconCreated with Sketch.Important
Access List Replaces Whitelist

This resource replaces the whitelist resource. Atlas deprecated whitelists. The whitelist resource will be disabled in June 2021. Consider updating your applications to use this new resource.

Info With Circle IconCreated with Sketch.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 /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/accessList endpoint manages the database IP access list. This endpoint differs from the /users/{USER-ID}/whitelist endpoint, which manages an Atlas user's API whitelist.

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.

DELETE /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/accessList/{ACCESS-LIST-ENTRY}
ParameterTypeNecessityDescription
PROJECT-IDstringRequiredUnique identifier for the project for which you want to delete an access list entry.
ACCESS-LIST-ENTRYstringRequired

Can be either the:

  • AWS security group ID,
  • IP address, or
  • CIDR address

of the access list entry to delete. If the entry includes a subnet mask, such as 192.0.2.0/24, use the URL-encoded value %2F for the forward slash /.

When you remove an entry from the IP access list, existing connections from the removed address(es) may remain open for a variable amount of time. How much time passes before Atlas closes the connection depends on several factors, including:

  • how the connection was established
  • how the application or driver using the address behaves
  • which protocol (like TCP or UDP ) the connection uses

This endpoint might use any of the HTTP request query parameters available to all Atlas API resources. All of these are optional.

NameTypeNecessityDescriptionDefault
prettybooleanOptionalFlag indicating whether the response body should be in a prettyprint format.false
envelopebooleanOptional

Flag indicating if Atlas should wrap the response in a JSON envelope.

This option may be needed for some API clients. These 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, the response body includes:

statusHTTP response code
envelopeExpected response body
false

This endpoint doesn't use HTTP request body parameters.

This endpoint does not have response elements.
