What is my ReST URL?

I installed Questions on my Cloud instance (https://dunncorp.atlassian.net).

Where do I access the ReST API for it? (I want to post questions programmatically).

The documentation says it's at  {{https://extranet.atlassian.com/rest/questions/1.0/question?limit=10}}  , so I swapped the first bit and and tried https://dunncorp.atlassian.net/rest/questions/1.0/question?limit=10 but got a 404

Hello Steve,

Thank you for contacting us about this.

The documentation you found is out-of-date, but thank you for bringing this to our attention. The REST API for Questions for Confluence REST API has been removed as of 2017's infrastructure change. Have a look at Functionality update and moving to our new cloud infrastructure for more details (under As a reminder, here's the functionality to be removed that we announced previously).

All of the documentation on the current Confluence Cloud REST API is available from Confluence Cloud REST API

There is a feature request below, where users are requesting to have the functionality back:

Please vote on this if you wish to see it and you will automatically be added to the list of watchers.

Thank you for your understanding.

Thanks Shannon.

Wow, that's quite a bit of functionality removed!

We rely heavily on this as we've been working around the lack of notification bar.

Does anyone actually read these suggestions, as the one you linked to said the documentation was out, but, nearly 2 years on, it's still out of date!

Hi Steve,

I think that likely the documentation that you linked to is something that was formerly updated by the Confluence Server team, but it still kept a reference to the Cloud platform. Our official documentation for REST API can be found at developer.atlassian.com. I'm working to see who updates the docs.atlassian.com one.

I would say always reference confluence.atlassian.com for official documentation and the Developer page for development-related documentation. And to answer your question, yes, we do read the suggestions at jira.atlassian.com.

Thank you again for reporting this!

Regards,

Shannon
