Hello Raju,

Accessing Confluence via Powershell will be done over the REST API. This type of interaction will be dependant on what your goal is that you wish to accomplish. Powershell does have built-in REST API calls that will allow you to interact with Confluence, though there may be some issues with authentication or the JSON data at times. More about Powershell’s interaction with REST APIs may be found at Invoke-RestMethod.

Additionally, you may also use curl calls while inside PowerShell. Curl is a bit more forgiving when using methods with a REST API and allows for easier scripting outside of Powershell. More about curl may be found at

Something we would like to understand is what is the goal you’re wanting to achieve with the REST API?
