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

(info) You need to have System Administrator permissions in order to perform this function.

To enable the remote API,

  1. Go to the Confluence 'Administration Console':

    • Choose Browse > Confluence Admin. The 'Administrator Access' login screen will be displayed.
    • Enter your password and click Confirm. You will be temporarily logged into a secure session to access the 'Administration Console'.
  2. Select 'General Configuration' in the left-hand panel.
  3. Click 'Edit' next to 'Site Configuration'.
  4. Select 'On' next to 'Remote API (XML-RPC & SOAP)'.
  5. Click 'Save' to retain your changes.
