MongoDB Atlas - Launch Cluster via API
A simple Ansible playbook to promgramatticaly launch MongoDB Atlas clusters.
You can take the basic features provided in this along with the example
atlas.json file with requirements for our cluster.
- MongoDB Atlas Account
- IP Whitelist configured for API access
- API Key
- Group ID
- Server to launch from
After you configure your Atlas account and set up your API key and whitelist, you can fill in the variables at the top of the
create-atlas.yml file or place them in a separate
vars: user: ENTER-MONGODB-ATLAS-USERNAME-HERE apikey: ENTER-SECRET-API-KEY-HERE groupid: ENTER-GROUPID-HERE
user requires your Atlas login username, this is not your MongoDB Database user. This would be the same user you log into your control panel for Atlas with.
apikey is generated in the Group Settings section of your Atlas control panel. Here you can generate a new key.
groupid is the ID of your Atlas group which can be found in the URL of your control panel or at the top of the "Group Settings" section.
