REST api not visible in Confluence

I am trying to use the REST api in Confluence 5.4.4. The documentation is somewhat cryptic in that at one point it is described as being in prototype form and elsewhere it says that this is the interface to use. Pressing forward, I managed to load up the REST api browser into my running Confluence, but there are no API's visible. I can see the list in the stand alone Confluence that I have have running fron the SDK. The REST plugin appears to be active in my main production Confluence, but when I try making a call ussing the examples, I get a 'Page not found' error.

What am I missing here?

Thanks,

Stan

It appears to be the version. I upgraed to 5.5 yesterday and the api is visible.

Maybe try enabling Remote API in Confluence General Configuration.

Andris, thanks for that suggestion. However, this does not seem to affect either the display within the REST api browser or the failure I receivewhen I make a call with CURL. In any case, that option appears to relate to XML-RPC and SOAP access. I did note that the version of the SDK stand alon Confluence instance is higher than mine - 5.5 vs 5.4.4. Perhaps it has not yet been released for general availability(?)

In confluence 5.4.4 only the prototype API is available, look here: https://docs.atlassian.com/atlassian-confluence/REST/5.4.4/
