Adding Users via API for Confluence 7.0.1

Jim Beard I'm New Here Jan 09, 2020



I have been using the soap API to add/disabe/re-enable users in a confluence server install.  After recent updates some of these API actions are failing, and I notice the soap API is deprecated.  However the REST API for confluence server seems to lack user administration API calls.  What should I be using to manage users via API in confluence server 7.0.1??

@Jim BeardWelcome to the community!!

You are correct that API for `User Admin` actions are not available in Confluence Server. This issue is tracked here -

But as per Atlassian sources, they are going to keep SOAP API's till all corresponding actions are fully implemented. So, I think you can use deprecated API's for some time. If these SOAP API's are not working correctly, you can contact Atlassian and log service request with them.

There are some plugins link 'Bob Swifts CLI Plugin' that you can use to perform Admin tasks remotely.
