Confluence REST API: Search returning 404 for all CQL queries

I am trying to use Confluence REST API and cannot get the "search" resource to return results.

I have tried many variations in the cql parameter but cannot get anything but a 404.  I have been referring to for sample queries, so one example of a URL I tried is http://confluence/rest/api/search?cql=siteSearch~'example'.

The response is always along the lines of:

<status><status-code>404</status-code><message>null for uri: http://confluence/rest/api/search?cql=siteSearch~%27example%27</message></status>

I am able to get results from the content resource on the same server, eg, http://confluence/rest/api/content?type=page.

What am I doing wrong?

request.addHeader("Content-Type", "application/json")
