DevOps Automation With MongoDB Atlas

DevOps Automation With MongoDB Atlas

Configuration Management

Configuration management tools such as PuppetChef, and Ansible, which provide the ability to quickly automate config and deployment processes, have become a critical part of many engineering teams’ plans when building new systems. Implementing an additional cloud service should fit alongside the configuration management methods you already use. Luckily, the MongoDB Atlas API provides you with the ability to programmatically launch MongoDB clusters with your pre-existing toolset, ensuring a repeatable and reliable method that can be customized to your needs.

MongoDB Atlas API

The Atlas API follows the principles of the REST architectural style and exposes a number of internal resources which enable programmatic access to Atlas features. Instead of writing additional code for the aforementioned tools, you can call upon this HTTPS API with instructions for the MongoDB cluster you would like to use and a secure key for authentication. If you follow the documentation of your configuration management tool, you should be able to leverage a similar method to submit an HTTPS POST to launch a MongoDB Atlas Cluster.
