Get One Restore Job


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 uses HTTP Digest Authentication. Provide your Atlas username and API key as the username and password when constructing the HTTP request.

For complete documentation on configuring API access for an Atlas project, see Configure Atlas API Access.
