there is no specific login page for the Rest API. You can use

  • Base Auth
  • OAuth

for authentication. The authentication method is used for every API call. Therefor you will find no function that is called login/logoff.

Please follow this link for more information.

So long


Hi Thomas,

Thanks for the reply. I was getting the below error when creating the spaces in confluence using Rest API's through J-Meter.

Error Message:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" Content="text/html; charset=us-ascii"></HEAD>
<BODY><h2>Bad Request - Invalid Header</h2>
<hr><p>HTTP Error 400. The request has an invalid header name.</p>


please do the needful.
