Delete an Entry from the Project IP Whitelist

Important
Access List Replaces Whitelist

Atlas now refers to its cluster firewall management as IP Access Lists. Atlas has deprecated the whitelist resource and will disable it in June 2021. Revise your whitelist endpoints to use the IP Access List resource.

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.

Important

The /groups/{GROUP-ID}/whitelist endpoint manages the Project IP Whitelist. This endpoint is distinct from the /users/{USER-ID}/whitelist endpoint, which manages an Atlas user's API whitelist.

The Atlas API authenticates using HTTP Digest Authentication. Provide a programmatic API public key and corresponding private key as the username and password when constructing the HTTP request.

To learn how to configure API access for an Atlas project, see Configure Atlas API Access.

DELETE /groups/{GROUP-ID}/whitelist/{WHITELIST-ENTRY}
Path Element
Required/Optional
Description
GROUP-ID
Required.
The unique identifier for the project for which you want to delete a whitelist entry.
WHITELIST-ENTRY
Required.

Can be either the:

  • AWS security group ID,
  • IP address, or
  • CIDR address

of the whitelist entry to delete. If the entry includes a subnet mask, such as 192.0.2.0/24, use the URL-encoded value %2F for the forward slash /.

Important

When you remove an entry from the IP access list, existing connections from the removed address(es) may remain open for a variable amount of time. How much time passes before Atlas closes the connection depends on several factors, including:

  • how the connection was established
  • how the application or driver using the address behaves
  • which protocol (like TCP or UDP) the connection uses

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

This endpoint does not use HTTP request body parameters.

This endpoint does not have response elements.

curl --user "{PUBLIC-KEY}:{PRIVATE-KEY}" --digest --include \

--request DELETE "https://cloud.mongodb.com/api/atlas/v1.0/groups/{GROUP-ID}/whitelist/192.0.2.0%2F24" \

This endpoint does not return a response body.
