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.

Kind regards,
