REST API: Authenticating Confluence using OAuth? Edited


I am wondering if there is the possibility to use OAuth authentication for REST API calls to Confluence?

In the REST documentation for confluence I could not find any information on authentication at all. So how can this be done? Any possibility NOT to use username + password?

Has anybody tried to authenticate from REST client using OAuth in the meantime?

Is the "JIRA way" also working for confluence?

Many thanks for support!

Bests, Sabrina

Hello, did you got it to work out?

Hi Mauro,

yes, we actually got it to work. If you still interested, I can have a look on how we did that and post it here...

Sorry for late answer,

I would love to see how you got it to work.
