Create a New Network Peering Container

Creates one Network Peering container into which Atlas can deploy Network Peering connections.

The following table outlines the maximum number of Network Peering containers per cloud provider:

Cloud Provider
Container Limit
GCP
One container per project.
AWS and Azure
One container per cloud provider region.

You must have either the Project Owner or Organization Owner role to successfully call this endpoint.

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.

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

POST /groups/{GROUP-ID}/containers
Parameter
Type
Necessity
Description
GROUP-ID
string
Required
Unique identifier for the Atlas project whose Network Peering container details you want to retrieve.

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
Parameter
Type
Necessity
Description
atlasCidrBlock
string
Required

CIDR block that Atlas uses for the network peering containers in your project.

Atlas uses the specified CIDR block for all other Network Peering connections created in the project. The Atlas CIDR block must be at least a /24 and at most a /21 in one of the following private networks.

Lower Bound
Upper Bound
Prefix
10.0.0.0
10.255.255.255
10/8
172.16.0.0
172.31.255.255
172.16/12
192.168.0.0
192.168.255.255
192.168/16

Atlas locks this value if an M10+ cluster or a Network Peering connection already exists. To modify the CIDR block, ensure there are no M10+ clusters in the project and no other VPC peering connections in the project.

Alternatively, create a new project and create a Network Peering Connection to set the desired Atlas VPC CIDR block for that project.

Important

Atlas limits the number of MongoDB nodes per Network Peering connection based on the CIDR block and the region selected for the project.

Example

A project in an AWS region supporting 3 availability zones and a Atlas CIDR VPC block of /24 is limited to the equivalent of 27 three-node replica sets.

Contact MongoDB Support for any questions on Atlas limits of MongoDB nodes per VPC.

providerName
string
Optional
Cloud provider for this Network Peering connection. If omitted, Atlas sets this parameter to AWS.
regionName
string
Required

Atlas region where the container resides.
