Hi Bala,

If you're using a Confluence 5.4 and less:

Look here for some help withApi for confluence: https://developer.atlassian.com/confdev/confluence-rest-api/confluence-xml-rpc-and-soap-apis/remote-confluence-methods#RemoteConfluenceMethods-UserManagement

  • boolean removeUserFromGroup(String token, String username, String groupname) - remove a user from a group.

With the new Rest API, use:

Recommended REST resourceREST method
removeUserFromGroup(java.lang.String token, RemoteGroup group, RemoteUser ruser) /rest/api/2/group/userDELETE

Hi Damien,

 Thanks for your help

FYI, I  need to use these rest api for python script to remove userfromgroup..Moreover I am using version Confluence v5.8.18. The first one you suggested is soap-apis,  the only alternative I found now is soap apis because  I am finding any rest api to use for my python script

removeUserFromGroup(java.lang.String token, RemoteGroup group, RemoteUser ruser) This rest api is good to use in python script??

@Damien Braz

Could you please help..Is that correct to use?

@Damien Braz

The REST api you are stated is jira REST Api, Is a jira REST api will work for a confluence installation? Because REST api docs for jira and confluence are different.





Conflunce REST Api:


Hi Bala, 


At the moment, Confluence API is only deprecated. You can still use the methods. The problem is Confluence will not be updated. Confluence Rest is not currently totally complete for Confluence. 

So, in my opinion, you should keed SOAP methods for the moments, waiting for Confluence adding methods you need. 

You can use: https://developer.atlassian.com/docs/developer-tools/using-the-rest-api-browser It will helpt you to discover the Rest Confluence Api smile
