Get One Restore Job for an M2/M5 Cluster


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.

Retrieve a single restore job for a specified M2 or M5 shared-tier cluster.

The Atlas API uses HTTP Digest Authentication. Provide a programmatic API public key and corresponding private 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.
