Delete One Existing Network 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 network peering connection associated with one Atlas project. You must have the Project Owner role or the Organization Owner role to successfully call this endpoint.

AWS Only

If you delete the last network peering connection associated with a project, Atlas also removes any AWS security groups from the project IP access list.


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 peering container ID. Use the Get All Peering Connections API to retrieve a list of peering connection ids for an Atlas project.

Request Query Parameters

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

Request Body Parameters

This endpoint doesn’t use HTTP request body parameters.

Example Request

curl --user "{PUBLIC-KEY}:{PRIVATE-KEY}" --digest \
  --header "Accept: application/json" \
  --request DELETE ""

Example Response
