Get 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.

Base URL:

GET /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/accessList
PROJECT-IDstringRequiredUnique identifier for the project from which you want to retrieve access list entries.

This endpoint may use any of the HTTP request query parameters available to all Atlas API resources. These are all optional.

pageNumintegerOptionalPage number, starting with one, that Atlas returns of the total number of objects.1
itemsPerPageintegerOptionalNumber of items that Atlas returns per page, up to a maximum of 500.100
includeCountbooleanOptionalFlag that indicates whether Atlas returns the totalCount parameter in the response body.true
prettybooleanOptionalFlag that indicates whether Atlas returns the JSON response in the prettyprint format.false

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.


This endpoint doesn't use HTTP request body parameters.

The response JSON document includes an array of result objects, an array of link objects and a count of the total number of result objects retrieved.

resultsarray of objectsOne object for each item detailed in the results Embedded Document section.
linksarray of objectsOne or more links to sub-resources and/or related resources. The relations between URL s are explained in the Web Linking Specification
totalCountintegerCount of the total number of items in the result set. It may be greater than the number of objects in the results array if the entire result set is paginated.

Each element in the result array is one access list entry associated to the project IP access list.

awsSecurityGroupstringUnique identifier of AWS security group in this access list entry.
cidrBlockstringRange of IP addresses in CIDR notation in this access list entry.
commentstringComment associated with this access list entry.
deleteAfterDatedateTimestamp in ISO 8601 date and time format in UTC after which Atlas deletes the temporary access list entry. Atlas returns this field if you specified an expiration date when creating this access list entry.
groupIdstringUnique identifier of the project to which this access list entry applies.
ipAddressstringEntry using an IP address in this access list entry.
linksobject arrayOne or more links to sub-resources and/or related resources. The relations between URL s are explained in the Web Linking Specification
