History comment can be added via REST API by sending: 

PUT /wiki/rest/api/content/{content_id}

"id": "content_id",
"title": "Page title",
"space": {"key": "SPACEKEY"},
"type": "page",
"body": {
"storage": {
"value": "Page body",
"representation": "storage"
"version": {
"message": "version comment",
"number": 2

 Or on the UI when saving the page


Once a version comment has been saved, it is not possible to change anymore.


is there a possibility to update a page with REST to generate a new version while keeping the whole page content.

I’ve noticed that no new version is created unless the title or content changes.
I want to create a new page version triggered by the click on a checkbox, but keep the complete content. I just want to set a version message.

On the UI, when saving the page, this is possible.
