API Endpoints

Aside from interacting via pull request comments, Atlantis could respond to a limited number of API endpoints.

Main Endpoints

The API endpoints in this section are disabled by default, since these API endpoints could change the infrastructure directly. To enable the API endpoints, api-secret should be configured.

Prerequisites

  • Set api-secret as part of the Server Configuration
  • Pass X-Atlantis-Token with the same secret in the request header
