Delete One Existing VPC Peering Connection


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:

Delete one AWS or GCP VPC peering connection associated with one specified project.


If you delete the last VPC peering connection associated with a project, Atlas also removes any AWS security groups from the project whitelist. GCP Compute Engine firewall rules are unaffected.


DELETE /groups/{GROUP-ID}/peers/{PEER-ID}

Request Path Parameters

Parameter Type Necessity Description
GROUP-ID string Required Unique identifier for the project.
PEER-ID string Required

Atlas assigned unique ID for the peering connection.


This is separate from the VPC ID. You can use the API to get the list of VPC connections and Peer IDs.
