Export & Import REST APIs


The Import-Export APIs for Atlas facilitate transfer of data to and from a cluster that has Atlas provisioned.

The APIs when integrated with backup and/or disaster recovery process will ensure participation of Atlas.


There are 2 broad categories viz. Export & Import. The details of the APIs are discussed below.

The APIs are available only to admin user.

Only a single import or export operation can be performed at a given time. The operations have a potential for generating large amount. They can also put pressure on resources. This restriction tries to alleviate this problem.
