I am trying to create user, delete user, add user into groups, remove users from groups, create group and delete group using APIs available for Confluence. But I am not able to find any API for these operation in the official documentation of Atlassian. Please suggest me an option to perform these operations in Confluence. Also, please answer why Atlassian is not providing APIs for these operations in Confluence?
Welcome to the Atlassian community
You will find the documentation for the actions around groups and users at
However as you will see there are differences between what is offered in Cloud and On Premise.
You may also want to look at Atlassian Crowd for your user management for on premise which gives you much greater control of your accounts and a full set of APIs.
You can also add your voice by voting for https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-56205
Thanks for the guidance.
The specified document does not contain any API for the operations mentioned in the question for On Premise.
Also, we don't have Atlassian Crowd in place for the application. Only JIRA instance is installed. Can I make use of JIRA instance to perform these operations on Confluence?
As you say you have Jira and that does have the required APIs
So if you use the user management in Jira and connect Confluence to it then you are certainly able to manage it that way.
Please confirm if the process described in "Connecting Confluence to Jira applications for User Management" section in the link given below is the correct way to connect these two applications.
