Confluence API with jquery and json Edited


I'm trying to connect with confluence API. My goal is to create page at choosen space using jqery with json and ajax. Here below is my code:



<title>Confuelnce API</title>
//headers for jqery
<script type = "text/javascript" src="js/jquery-3.2.1.min.js">
<script type = "text/javascript">

//json data to push them to confluence
var data = {
"type": "page",
"title": "New Page 2",
"space": {
"key": "TST2"
"body": {
"storage": {
"value": "<p>This is a new page</p>",
"representation": "storage"
var link = 'http://localhost:8090/confluence/rest/api/content/';

url: link,
type: "POST",
dataType: "json",
crossDomain: true,
username: "myusername",
password: "mypass",
data: JSON.stringify(data),
Accept: application/json,
contentType: "application/json",
xhrFields: {
"withCredentials": true

success: function (result) {
alert('Data saved!');
error : function (xhr, status, error) {
alert(status + ' | ' + error);


<h1>jqery - confluence connection</h1>


In browser console (google chrome) I have no errors but in confluence there is no "new page 2" page. Could someone study my code and get a little help to me because I have no idea what I'm doing wrong for now.

I am not 100% sure about the code, but I think the line starting with Accept: should be someline like:

accepts: {        text: "application/json"

I am also wondering if you would need to trigger a re-index.
