Delete an LDAP userToDNMapping

Removes the current userToDNMapping from the LDAP configuration for an Atlas project. A userToDNMapping maps the username provided to a mongod or mongos process for authentication to an LDAP Distinguished Name (DN).

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.

DELETE /groups/{GROUP-ID}/userSecurity
GROUP-IDRequiredIdentifier for the Atlas group associated with the LDAP over TLS/SSL configuration.

The following query parameters are optional:

Query ParameterTypeDescriptionDefault
prettybooleanDisplays response in a prettyprint format.false
envelopebooleanSpecifies whether or not to wrap the response in an envelope.false

This endpoint does not use HTTP request body parameters.

ldapdocumentSpecifies the LDAP over TLS/SSL configuration details for an Atlas group.
ldap.authenticationEnabledbooleanSpecifies whether user authentication with LDAP is enabled.
ldap.authorizationEnabledbooleanSpecifies whether user authorization with LDAP is enabled. You cannot enable user authorization with LDAP without first enabling user authentication with LDAP.
ldap.authzQueryTemplatestringThe LDAP query template that Atlas executes to obtain the LDAP groups to which the authenticated user belongs. Used only for user authorization. Use the {USER} placeholder in the URL to substitute the authenticated username. The query is relative to the host specified with hostname. The formatting for the query must conform to RFC4515 and RFC 4516. If you do not provide a query template, Atlas attempts to use the default value: {USER}?memberOf?base.
ldap.hostnamestringThe hostname or IP address of the LDAP server. The server must be visible to the internet or connected to your Atlas cluster with VPC Peering.
ldap.portintegerThe port to which the LDAP server listens for client connections.
ldap.bindUsernamestringThe user DN that Atlas uses to connect to the LDAP server. Must be the full DN, such as CN=BindUser,CN=Users,DC=myldapserver,DC=mycompany,DC=com.

The following example unsets the values for caCertificate and authzQueryTemplate from the current LDAP configuration:

curl -X DELETE --digest -i -u "{PUBLIC-KEY}:{PRIVATE-KEY}" \

The following example response shows the remaining LDAP configuration for the Atlas project:

"ldap" : {
"authenticationEnabled" : true,
"authorizationEnabled" : true,
"authzQueryTemplate" : "{USER}?memberOf?base",
"bindUsername" : "CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=atlas-ldaps-01,DC=myteam,DC=com",
"hostname" : "",
"port" : 636
