Trying to set a template to a page.

Hey guys.

AIM: There are some templates available on my companies confluence page.
I want to use 1 of them when I am making a page.

My Questions and What I have tried till now.
1)
When making  a page with the REST API, I do not see any body parameter which I could use to set the template I would like to use.

2) If the template is indeed passed in the body parameter during page creation, do I need to find out the ID of the template I plan to use? 
I tried to find out the information about the template on my companies server by following this link.
https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/confluence/rest/api-group-template/#api-wiki-rest-api-template-page-get
But All I get is the following error!

Thank you for your time! I hope the question is well enough formatted for the reader.

Hi @Sufficient Monk ,

There is no way to select a template while creating a page with REST API.

You can try to get the template in storage format, extract the storage format and add that to the body when creating the new page. If you want to add some own content during creation you can modify the storage format data.

There is an experimental API to get the template, here is a question I once had where it is explained.

Thank you so much for the real;ly quick answer. I was able to complete my task because of you. Good night. And hope you the best of luck!!
