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.

Note

You can delete a project only if there are no Online Archives for the clusters in the project.

DELETE /groups/{GROUP-ID}
Path Element
Required/Optional
Description
GROUP-ID
Required.
The unique identifier for the project that you want to delete.

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
false

This endpoint does not use HTTP request body parameters.

This endpoint returns an empty JSON document.
