Is it possible to use the rest apis for jira and confluence without creating an addon?

I am investigating the api for JIRA and Confluence. 

 

Is it possible to use the rest apis for jira and confluence without creating an addon?

 

For example:  We would like to create issues and projects and users from our internal system.

Also pull in confluence pages / data into our internal system

 

Thanks,

 

Randy

Absolutely - the REST APIs were originally designed for using the systems externally, not for add-ons (but it makes sense to use them for add-ons as it avoids re-inventing wheels)

Have a look at the REST API tutorials and examples - you can find one-liners that use curl to poke a REST api and make it do almost anything.  Scripts or command lines that run independently without any need of add-ons or even compiled code.
