Confluence Cloud REST API : "message": "Current user not permitted to use Confluence", "statusCode":

Hello everyone, just started to explore confluence REST APIs. I was trying a simple code api-content-get  

const fetch = require('node-fetch');
fetch('', {
method: 'GET',
headers: {
'Accept': 'application/json'
.then(response => {
`Response: ${response.status} ${response.statusText}`
return response.text();
.then(text => console.log(text))
.catch(err => console.error(err));


But I am getting this error

"message": "Current user not permitted to use Confluence",
"statusCode": 403

Additional info: I was able to follow and run all the example give here connect-tutorials-and-guides

 and I have the Admin access to my domain. I think somewhere I need to give my credentials but I don't know where. I can't figure out what the issue is, can anyone help?

Hi @Swapnil Kamble ,


Which application you are using to run API like there is postman application. If not please confirm which method you are using to run confluence API.


In any of method you need to specify your admin credentials when you run any api of confluence.
