Add Existing Users to One Project

Note

Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {PROJECT-ID} is the same as your project id. For existing groups, your group/project id remains the same. This page uses the more familiar term group when referring to descriptions. The endpoint remains as stated in the document.

This resource adds users who exist in Cloud Manager to another project. It does not create new users and add them to a project.

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

Resource

POST /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/users

Request Parameters

Request Path Parameters

Parameter Type Description
PROJECT-ID string (Required.) The unique identifier for the project.

Request Query Parameters

The following query parameters are optional:

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

Flag that indicates whether or not to wrap the response in a JSON 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 Expected response body
false

Example Request

curl --user "{PUBLIC-KEY}:{PRIVATE-KEY}" --digest \
 --header "Accept: application/json" \
 --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
 --include \
 --request POST "https://cloud.mongodb.com/api/public/v1.0/groups/{PROJECT-ID}/users?pretty=true" \
 --data '
 [
   {
     "id": "{USER-ID}",
     "roles": [{
       "roleName": "GROUP_OWNER"
     }]
   }
 ]'

Note

You must send an array of entities, even if adding a single user. For each user that you wish to add, specify the user ID and the roles the user should possess. For role values, see the description of the roles.roleName field in the users resource.

If you specify a user that is already a member of the project, their existing roles are overwritten with the specified permissions.
