Hi @Prem Methuku 
Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

If you have the target pageID, then you can use the following REST API call to the get the list of ancestors (aka parents) of the current page.



Kind regards,

That works! Thanks Thiago.

If you (or somebody else for that matter) will be using the Python library you can just call

page = confluence.get_page_by_id(page_id=page_id, expand='ancestors')
parent_id = page['ancestors'][-1]['id']

 and get the parent_id from a list of ancestors.
