Hello Михаил and welcome to the Community!

To use the REST API to create a page from a users template you will need to complete a few steps. You will need to take this as an approach to find the template, extract the content as a storage value and then pass this through to your REST API call to create a page. Here is how it would look in steps:

  1. Locate an example page with the template applied.
  2. Scrub that page via a REST API call using the following endpoint: GET /rest/api/content (This will allow you to get the storage format).
  3. From this, pass the storage format to your create call using this endpoint: POST /rest/api/content

While these steps are simplified, this process should allow you to create a page based off a user template.

Hello Stephen,

I have the same question and am very grateful for the instructions. But I get stuck on the first step already. What does "Locate an example page with the template applied." mean?

Well, I have a user template. It has a title and an entityid, but I can't get both via GET /rest/api/content. Therefore I need type=page and a "title". If I first create an example page manually, I can of course query this, but that's exactly what I don't want.

Thanks,

Volker

Hi Sephen,

I'm trying to reproduce the workflow that you explain it, but I don't get the storage info in the API Rest call : 

This is my request in Postman :

Body response : 

{ "results": [ { "id": "393224", "type": "page", "status": "current", "title": "Template Test Notes", "macroRenderedOutput": {}, "extensions": { "position": 123 }, "_expandable": { "container": "/rest/api/space/PAC", "metadata": "", "restrictions": "/rest/api/content/393224/restriction/byOperation", "history": "/rest/api/content/393224/history", "body": "", "version": "", "descendants": "/rest/api/content/393224/descendant", "space": "/rest/api/space/PAC", "childTypes": "", "operations": "", "schedulePublishDate": "", "children": "/rest/api/content/393224/child", "ancestors": "" }, "_links": { "self": "https://packlink-locally.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/content/393224", "tinyui": "/x/CAAG", "editui": "/pages/resumedraft.action?draftId=393224", "webui": "/spaces/PAC/pages/393224/Template+Test+Notes" } } ], "start": 0, "limit": 25, "size": 1, "_links": { "base": "https://packlink-locally.atlassian.net/wiki", "context": "/wiki", "self": "https://packlink-locally.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/content?id=393224" }}

 How can I get that info?? 

 

Thankss!!

Hello Maria,

to get the content in the storage format you have to use the expansions in the REST API.
The request in this case would be


{server}/rest/api/content/{id}?expand=body.storage


This will give you the content of the page with the id in the storage format.

After that you can update a page.

Greetings

Volker

          xhrFields: {
          withCredentials: false
          },
          data: JSON.stringify(jsondata),
          success: function (response) {
              console.log('Page saved!');
              atualizaPagina(response["id"]);
          },
          error: function (xhr, errorText) {
              console.log('Error ' + xhr.responseText);
alert("Algo deu errado, consulte o administrador da ferramenta para mais detalhes");           }
      });
  }
 
  function buscaTemplate() {
      var dataToReturn = "Error";
      AJS.$.ajax({
          url: "/rest/api/content/" + homePgId + "?expand=body.storage",
          type: "GET",
          dataType: "JSON",
          async: false,
          success: function (msg) {
              dataToReturn = (msg["body"]["storage"]["value"]);
          },
error: function (xhr, errorText) {
              console.log('Error ' + xhr.responseText);
alert("Algo deu errado, consulte o administrador da ferramenta para mais detalhes");           }
      });
      return dataToReturn;
  }

Is it possible to update template variables while creating new page with the template ? I have a template with 5-6 variables and need to update those to new values when creating new page.
