Create an Organization

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

Important

To create an organization, you must authenticate as a Cloud Manager user. If you attempt to create an organization using API Key credentials instead of Cloud Manager user credentials, Cloud Manager returns the API_KEY_CANNOT_CREATE_ORG error.

Resource

POST /orgs

Request Parameters

Request Path Parameters

This endpoint does not use HTTP request path parameters.

Request Query Parameters

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

Name Type Description Default
pageNum integer Page number (1-based). 1
itemsPerPage integer Number of items to return per page, up to a maximum of 500. 100
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 a list of results, the results object is an envelope. Cloud Manager adds the status field to the response body.
