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

Resource

POST /groups/{GROUP-ID}/containers

Request Path Parameters

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

Request Query Parameters

This endpoint may use any of the HTTP request query parameters available to all Atlas API resources. These are all optional.

Name Type Description Default
pretty boolean Indicates whether the response body should be in a prettyprint format. false
envelope boolean

Indicates whether or not to wrap the response in an envelope.

Some API 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 The expected response body
false

Request Body Parameters

Parameter Type Necessity Description
atlasCidrBlock string Required

CIDR block that Atlas uses for your clusters.

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 AWS region.
Field Type Description
atlasCidrBlock string CIDR block that Atlas uses for the Network Peering containers in your project.
providerName string Name of the cloud provider.
region string Azure region where the container resides.
Parameter Type Necessity Description
atlasCidrBlock string Required

CIDR block that Atlas uses for your clusters.

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.
