Can we create a Confluence Page from a template via REST API?

I'm trying to use the "Send web request" option in JIRA's Project Automation to generate a Confluence Page via REST API

I'm able to use the following code but I don't know how to force Confluence to use an existing template or a global template like "Design Review" when creating the new page.


"title": "ABCD",
"type": "page",
"space": { "key": "ABC" },
"status": "current",
"body": {"storage": {"value": "Sample Text", "representation": "storage"}}

You can do this with an undocumented rest api. 


First create a new page using the content api as a type of draft:



    "status" : "draft",


Use the id retreived from this page to update the draft from a template:




{"content":{"id":"content_id","type":"page","title":"employee 1","status":"draft","space":{"key":"HR"},"version":{"number":1},"ancestors":[{"id":"content_id"}]},"contentBlueprintSpec":{"contentTemplateId":"template_id","context":{"employee_name":"a","employee_type":"a"}}}
