In the organizations and projects hierarchy, an organization can contain multiple projects (previously referred to as groups). Under this structure:

  • Billing happens at the organization level while preserving visibility into usage in each project.

  • You can view all projects within an organization.

  • You can use teams to bulk assign organization users to projects within the organization.

If you need to scale beyond the existing project limits, you can create multiple organizations.

When you create an organization, you are added as an Organization Owner for the organization.

When you create a new organization with the Atlas UI, Atlas requires IP access lists for the Atlas Administration API by default. If you require an IP access list, your Atlas Administration API keys can make API requests only from the location-based IP or CIDR addresses that you specify in the IP access list.

To disable the IP access list requirement and allow your Atlas Administration API keys to make requests from any address on the internet, toggle Require IP Access List for the Atlas Administration API to OFF.

To learn more, see Optional: Require an IP Access List for the Atlas Administration API.

If you have a Backup Compliance Policy enabled, you can't delete a project if any snapshots exists. If you can't remove all projects, you can't delete the organization.
