MongoDB Atlas

Vantage integrates with your MongoDB account using the Invoices API. To see Active Resources for your MongoDB Atlas account, Vantage uses the Clusters API and the Projects API.

Connect Your MongoDB Atlas Account


  • To create an API key for Vantage to ingest costs, you must be an Organization Owner inside the MongoDB Atlas console.

  • To add the API key to relevant projects to use Active Resource inventories inside Vantage, you must be a Project Owner in the MongoDB Atlas console.


    For more information on user roles in MongoDB Atlas, see the MongoDB Atlas documentation.

Create a free Vantage account, then follow the steps below to integrate MongoDB Atlas costs.

Step 1: Review the Vantage Integration Page

Navigate to the MongoDB Atlas Settings page in the Vantage console. Then, click Add API Key.

You will need to add your Organization ID, Public API key, and Private API key. Detailed steps for obtaining each of these items are provided below. Leave this tab open so you can go back and populate these fields as you obtain each value.

  5. At the bottom, click Done.

If you want to have Vantage ingest per-cluster resource data from MongoDB Atlas, then proceed to the next section. Otherwise, back in the Vantage console, click Add Key.

Step 4: Grant Project Access for Active Resources

  1. On the left navigation menu, select Projects to see your list of Atlas projects. Select your project from the list.

    Expand to view example image
    Open MongoDB Atlas projects
  2. At the top, click Access Manager, then select the project.

  3. Click Invite to Project.

  4. Search for and select the Vantage Integration API key to add it to the project.

  5. Grant the Vantage Integration API key Project Read Only access. Then, click Invite to Project. Repeat this process for any other projects where you want to see resource-level costs.

    Grant API key read-only access to project
  6. Back in the Vantage console, click Add Key.

Your MongoDB Atlas integration status should automatically update from Pending to Importing. MongoDB Atlas data is refreshed once a day. If you've successfully granted project access for active resources, your Active Resources view will begin populating with cost data.

Next Steps: Manage Workspace Access

Once your costs are imported, select which workspaces this integration is associated with. See the Workspaces documentation for information.

MongoDB Atlas Reporting Dimensions

On MongoDB Atlas Cost Reports, you can filter across several dimensions:

  • Project
  • Organization
  • Service
  • Category
  • Resource (e.g., Realm costs)
  • Tag

Active Resources

MongoDB Atlas clusters are synced as active resources and available in resource reports.
