REST API: How to create page that gets the new editor?

I'm trying to use the REST API to create a confluence page that uses the new editor.

Currently, pages that I create via the UI have the new editor. I took one of those pages and used the GET EP for the content `/wiki/rest/api/content/$pageId?expand=body.editor2` ( to get the editor representation of that page.

When I use the POST variant of the API (  to create a new page with the body value exactly what was returned from the initial get request and choosing the `editor2` representation, the page created is using the old editor and gives me a "Convert to new editor" button. 

Do I need to set some other parameters that I'm unaware of or is `editor2` not the representation that maps to the new editor? 

Thanks for the help.

Hello @Jan Hellmich !

As I understand, you need to create pages via REST API and you also need those pages to be on the New Editor rather than the Legacy one.

Some time ago I dealt with a pretty similar need and pointed them in the direction of someone who had already achieved this. You can take a look at my thread here:
