How to use the Share-Page plugin REST API?

Daniel Kühner April 15, 2020


I am writing a Confluence User-Macro and I want to "notify" our users. I have searched for sending mails / notifications or something like this but I could not find anything. Then I spotted the "Share"-Button on the pages.

I did some research and found the REST call to:

POST /rest/share-page/latest/share

With a payload of the format of:

"users": [],
"emails": [],
"groups": [],
"note": "",
"entityId": "",
"entityType": "",
"contextualPageId": ""

Then I have searched the web for the documentation of the REST API of "com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.share-page" but I could not find anything.

I have spotted the plugin at but without any hints about the REST API. JavaDoc is empty and no source code.

Found this through: share page. any events fired ? 

Can you please provide / share me the documentation of the REST API of this plugin?

Thanks, Daniel

Try this:


<button id="shareIT" class="aui-button aui-button-primary">share it</button>


<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.toInit(function() {

jQuery("#shareIT").click(function() {  

var jsondata = {
//users: ["123c02b50038b550150038e09de1cc1"],
contextualPageId: "3942484297",
emails: [""],
entityId: "3942484297",
entityType: "page",
//groups: [],
note: "A example page"

type: "POST",
url: "/rest/share-page/latest/share",
contentType:"application/json; charset=utf-8",
dataType: "json",
async: false,
data: JSON.stringify(jsondata),
success: function () { alert('Page shared with ' + jsondata.emails); },
fail: function () { alert('Error'); }


} );
