Hi, Jagruthi.

I don't know exactly how you handle REST API calls in Python, but you should use the POST function /rest/api/content.


This documentation will probably be helpful:

Hello Jagruthi,

Thank you for your question.

Please, find below a code sample on how to create a space as per REST API documentation:

# =========
# create space
# =========
import requests
import json

# [CONFLUENCE-BASE-URL], i.e.: http(s)://confluence
# [SPACE-KEY], i.e.: ds (stands for Demonstration Space)
# [SPACE-TITLE], i.e.: Demonstration Space
url = '[CONFLUENCE-BASE-URL]/rest/api/content/'
data = {"key":"[SPACE-KEY]","name":"[SPACE-TITLE]","description":{"plain":{"value":"This is an example space","representation":"plain"}}}
headers = {'Content-Type': 'application/json'}

# create page
# [USERNAME], i.e.: admin
# [PASSWORD], i.e.: admin
r = requests.post(url, data=json.dumps(data), headers=headers, auth=('admin', 'admin'))
print(r.status_code)
print(r.text)

If you find this answer useful, I would kindly ask you to accept it so the same will be visible to others who might be facing the same issue you have inquired.

Thank you for your understanding.
