Enabling the Remote API

Confluence provides XML-RPC and SOAP remote APIs (application programming interfaces). You need to enable the APIs from the Administration Console before you can access Confluence remotely.

You need System Administrator permissions in order to perform this function.

To enable the remote API:

  1. Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration
  2. Click Further Configuration in the left-hand panel.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Click the check box next to Remote API (XML-RPC & SOAP).
  5. Click Save.
