Get Single Project IP Access List Entry

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.


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}/whitelist endpoint manages the Project IP Whitelist. This endpoint is distinct 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.

Request Path Parameters

Parameter Type Necessity Description
PROJECT-ID string Required Unique identifier for the project from which you want to retrieve an access list entry.
ACCESS-LIST-ENTRY string Required

Can be either the:

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

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

Request Query Parameters

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

Name Type Necessity Description Default
pretty boolean Optional Flag indicating whether the response body should be in a prettyprint format. false
envelope boolean Optional

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:

status HTTP response code
envelope Expected response body

Request Body Parameters

This endpoint doesn’t use HTTP request body parameters.
