Get All Projects


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.

Base URL:


GET /api/atlas/v1.0/groups

itemsPerPage Optional.

Number of items to return per page, up to a maximum of 500.

HTTP Response Elements

If you set the query element envelope to true, the response is wrapped by the content object.

The HTTP response returns a JSON document that includes the following objects:


An array of documents, each representing one Atlas project.

Name Description
clusterCount The number of Atlas clusters deployed in the project.
created The ISO-8601-formatted timestamp of when Atlas created the project.
id The unique identifier of the project. You can use this value for populating the {GROUP-ID} parameter of other Atlas API endpoints.
links An array of documents, representing a link to one or more sub-resources and/or related resources, such as list pagination. See Linking for more information.
name The name of the project. You can use this value for populating the {GROUP-NAME} parameter of the /groups/byName/{GROUP-NAME} endpoint.
orgId The unique identifier of the Atlas organization to which the project belongs.


The total number of items in the result set. This value may be higher than the number of objects in the results array if the entire result set is paginated.
