REST space API depth=root not working

Hello everybody.

I want to retreive a pages tree from confluence by it's REST API:

We have  this command there:


Default: all

a string indicating if all content, or just the root content of the space is returned. Default value: all. Valid values: all, root.


But, when I try it, i'm getting a server error:

{"statusCode":500,"message":"java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unrecognised Depth string: ROOT"}


With depth=all everything is OK.

What am I doing wrong? Is it a bug? Is there another method to get the root of pages tree?

Can't help, but I'm running into the same problem with Confluence 5.5.6 :/

Hi Alex,

I just replicated that, so I created a bug report for it:
