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.

 function criaPagina() {
 
      //This creates a page in a space.
      var paginaano = $('#ano :selected').val();
      var demanda = $("#demanda");
      var link = $("#link");
      var jsondata = {
          "type": "page",
          "title": demanda.val(),
          "ancestors": [{
              "id": paginaano
            }],
          "space": {
              "key": AJS.params.spaceKey
          },
          "body": {
              "storage": {
                  "value": "<p>Clique no link abaixo para acessar a demanda no Clarity:</p>" + "<a class='009' href='" + encodeURIComponent(link.val())+"'>Demanda no Clarity</a>" + buscaTemplate(),
                  "representation": "storage"
              }
          }
      };
 
      $.ajax({
          type: "POST",
          url: "/rest/api/content/",
          contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
          dataType: "json",
          async: false,
          headers: {
                "Authorization": "Basic " + UserBase64
           },
          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.
