How to specify parent page of new/updated page in Confluence REST API?

I'm able to create/modify pages via the Confluence REST API, but they all appear at the space root. If I move a page manually, and then I update its content via the API, it is moved back to the space root. How do I create a page which has another page as its parent?

One of the comments in this stack overflow question details how to create the new page as a child of an existing page using the 'ancestors' property:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23523705/how-to-create-new-page-in-confluence-using-their-rest-api

But it does warn that this is an undocumented feature.

Yes, great, that comment did the trick.

"ancestors":[{"type":"page","id":12345}]

How do you get the ancestor ID of an existing page? It's always empty (either an empty array or an empty string) when I fetch the page.
