Copy page hierarchy in Confluence Server via REST API

Hi all,

I am trying to copy a page hierarchy from one space to another space via the Confluence REST API. In the Confluence Cloud API there exists

POST /wiki/rest/api/content/{id}/pagehierarchy/copy



On the server version I am getting a 404 error when trying to use this interface (note that authorization is not the problem). Is this functionality only available in the cloud version?


PS: In the cloud version it worked fine.

For server it'll be 

POST /rest/api/content/{id}/pagehierarchy/copy

This is very misleading. There is no such api in Confluence Server.

@EdwinI tried to use the syntax you suggest, ie:

POST /rest/api/content/{id}/pagehierarchy/copy

 I get error 404. Using the python version, the syntax translates to:

url = "https://my.domain/confluence/rest/api/content/11111/pagehierarchy/copy"
headers = {"Content-Type": "application/json"}
payload = json.dumps( {  
"copyAttachments": True,  
"copyPermissions": True,  
"copyProperties": True,  
"copyLabels": True,  
"destinationPageId": "2222222",  
"titleOptions": {    
"prefix": "aaa",    
"replace": "",    
"search": ""  }} )
rrr = requests.request(   
   auth=("user", "password"),

 The user I'm connected to has view page rights on the source space, and successfully created the destination space, using the relevant API. Logged in as that user, the copy operation works when using the UI.

I also tried with   "copyPermissions"False,  "copyProperties"False,  "copyLabels"False,


I have the same need here (copy a page hierarchy to another space)... I've installed REST api browser, but it really seems like this function is not available on server ...

Any ideas, anyone?


Did you ever find it?

I have confluence 6.5.0.

I am looking for a way to copy the page hierarchy using a rest api, not the ui.

Ok, my bad. The api is private. I was looking at the public apis.
