Authenticate using the Atlas Go SDK

The atlas-sdk-go library uses Digest authentication. You can create an API key through the Atlas UI or the Atlas CLI.

To learn more about API authentication, see Atlas Administration API Authentication.

Construct a new Atlas SDK client, then use the services on the client to access different parts of the Atlas Admin API. For example:

import ""
func example() {
ctx := context.Background()
apiKey := os.Getenv("MONGODB_ATLAS_PUBLIC_KEY")
apiSecret := os.Getenv("MONGODB_ATLAS_PRIVATE_KEY")
sdk, err := admin.NewClient(admin.UseDigestAuth(apiKey, apiSecret))
if err != nil {
log.Fatalf("Error when instantiating new client: %v", err)
projects, response, err := sdk.ProjectsApi.ListProjects(ctx).Execute()
if err != nil {
log.Fatalf("Could not fetch projects: %v", err)
fmt.Printf("Response status: %v\n", response.Status)
