Invite one user to the specified Atlas project.

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 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.

You can successfully call this endpoint with the Project Owner role.

Base URL: https://cloud.mongodb.com/api/atlas/v1.0

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