How to get space with category using Confluence REST API?


I'm using REST API of confluence and successfully got page content, body etc.

  • Problem is, I can't get Space category. I could get (key, name, type, desc. etc) but no information about in which category it is.

Hi Zubaidullo,

The only one I could see that returned the space labels is the spacedirectory/1/search method (which is private, but still accessible, although I'm not sure if it's accessible from Connect).  The only problem is that there is no built-in way to filter by space key, so as long as you don't have too many spaces I would just get them all and loop through them to get the one you need (there is a query parameter, but it searches name and description, not key).

https://<your Confluence>/rest/spacedirectory/1/search?type=global

should do the trick.  You should install the REST API Browser; that would make finding API calls much easier.

Thank you, Stephen. It was useful information and I got what I needed. )) There is something about category and it's enough.

To add on, for those of you who are having problems getting > 50 spaces, try this:

Then search for spacedirectory/1/search

The parameter starts from will return you a maximum result of 50 ( 0 ~ 49)

Thus to get 51 or index 50 onwards simply:
