Confluence Authentication

We are tying to figure out how to connect our current website to the Confluence Wiki. Below is what we are using for development and at the bottom you can see the error message generated inthe response secetion.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

What we are using:

Php (laravel 4 framework)

Javascript (jquery)

Here is sample code:


url: '',

type: 'GET',

dataType: 'json',

crossDomain: true,

beforeSend: function(xhr){


"Basic " + btoa("username:password"));


sucess: function(result) {





1. OPTIONS 401 (Unauthorized) jquery.js:7858

XMLHttpRequest cannot load No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin '' is therefore not allowed access. (index):1

dataType must be jsonp for cross domains requests.
