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:

  1. Select Administration , then select General Configuration
  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.
