Confluence REST API unable to create Child page


I am trying to create a Child page in Confluence using restAPI but getting a 403 error response.


"title":"New child page",


{"value":"<p>This is a new child page</p>",


"statusCode": 403,
"data": {
"authorized": false,
"valid": true,
"errors": [],
"successful": false
"message": "Could not create content with type page"

Note: I am able to run a GET and PUT (update the confluence pages) succesfully.

Do you really pass "/rest/api/space/MySpace" string as a space key?

Hi Pavel,

Yes I do pass /rest/api/space/MySpace as space key.
Also, I am able to create the page manually in confluence, so I am guessing its not permission issue.

I was able to resolve the issue by fixing my request.

The space key had to be updated from:
"space": {
"key": "/rest/api/space/MySpace"



"space": {
"key": "MySpace"
