Does SOAP and XML RPC APIs still work in Confluence 5.5+ versions?

Hi All

I saw that Atlassian planned to deprecate the SOAP and XML RPC APIs from Version 5.5+. (see link below)

Does this mean we cannot use the APIs on 5.5+ OR

Does it mean that the interfaces are unsupported in 5.5+.?

Has anyone used SOAP and XML RPC on version 5.5+?

They still work. I use XML-rpc and JSON-rpc all the time on Confluence 5.7 and 5.10.

All they are saying is that they will not upgrade those APIs anymore but they will still continue to work. If you can, you should use the REST api since they update those but if not, you can still use those older APIs and they will still work. I used the XML-rpc a lot because at the time when I was creating scripts the REST api was not as good, but now they have updated it and you can do pretty much the same thing with all of them. I haven't updated any of my scripts to use the REST API though so they all still use the rpc api and work fine.




Thanks Alex...that helps

Just wanted to let you know that they still work – another data point. But work on converting your scripts.
