Uploading documentation with Confluence API Rest

Confluence API Rest In this post I will talk about how uploading documentation using the Confluence API Rest. Projects are in constant growth and documentation in constant deprecation. To avoid that, some times it’s required to automatise documentation procedures so documentation shows latest changes. In our case we want to inform which data entities provide our Data Warehouse and basic properties that clients will be grateful to know like distribution, data types or column purpose descriptions. Due we are using Okta integration, we have to ask for a Confluence Service User with Creation rights in our desired space. We don’t want Delete rights to avoid problems removing wrong pages.

I love to use it in my own projects (ex. efimeres.com) where I need to search entities by text, categories or some facets that define them. It’s quite easy to set up a initial cluster and start querying.Read More →
