Enabling the Remote API
XML-RPC and SOAP remote APIs were deprecated in Confluence 5.5. We recommend using the fully supported Confluence Server REST API wherever possible.
To use the XML-RPC and SOAP remote APIs you need to enable the APIs from the Administration Console. You'll need System Administrator permissions to do this.
To enable the remote API:
- Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration
- Click Further Configuration in the left-hand panel.
- Click Edit.
- Click the check box next to Remote API (XML-RPC & SOAP).
- Click Save.
