MongoDB Management Service API Release Notes



The past few weeks the team has been hard at work on a new MongoDB API and today we are releasing it to the public. The API follows the principles of the REST architectural style to expose a number of internal resources, enabling programmatic access to the MongoDB Management Service feature set.

Here’s a sampling of what you can do with the MMS Public API:

  • Retrieve, create, update, and delete hosts
  • Retrieve and create groups
  • Retrieve and create users
  • Add and remove users from groups
  • Start, stop, and terminate backups
  • …and much more.

    Ready to try it out? To use it, you’ll need to create an API key and enable API access for your MMS group(s). For full details on how to get started, check out the documentation. Once you’re up and running, refer to the complete reference to learn what you can do.

    We’ll be constantly improving the API to add functionality, and you can rest assured that we will not introduce any changes that will compromise backward compatibility. Future versions of the API will allow customers to manage backups of MongoDB deployments, monitor their MongoDB deployment in third party dashboards, and more.

    If you find an issue or have a feature request for MMS Public API, we want to hear about it! Simply file a ticket in our feature request queue.
