Confluence REST API, Create new page does not work, update are working well



I'm trying to use postman tool to create API call for creation of new confluence page.

I've also used python console too for that, but in any casese it's does not work.


POST /confluence/rest/api/content/ HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/json
Accept: application/json
Cache-Control: no-cache
Postman-Token: 986c9484-c4e6-87be-891c-6ba1b7e079dd

"title": "My new title",
"type": "page",
"space": {"key":"LXEMP02"},
"value":"<p>New page data.</p>",


System always return the same response if you will call the same endpoint with GET method. No errors no messages always code 200


Could somebody help me with that?


REST API for updating page are working well.

Postman-Token: 911456d9-b5b1-1440-4686-7de6f51d492c

I've used wrong documentation and end point:

I have the same problem. I am sending a POST to

It dosen't matter if I give invalid JSON all I get back is a 200 OK and the results as if I ran a get.

I am able to update pages by sending a PUT to

The documentation you point to is the one I am using. Can you tell me which documentation you are using, which you were using and why there is a difference between the two?

Did your issue ever get resolved @Robert Metcalf ? I'm having the same issue right now as well. The confluence server API always returns a list of pages I didn't request to GET when I try to POST a new page to a wiki.

Make sure you are using HTTPS.  I was using HTTP by mistake and I believe the server was redirecting it to a GET request thus always returning response 200.

@Matt_Leicht Accidental using of HTTP was my issue. Thanks!
