REST API: Authenticating Confluence using OAuth? Edited

hi,

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
