Added New Endpoints Released for Confluence REST API v2

More details

These granular endpoints correlate to more specific functions and allow you to be intentional about how you interact with Confluence data.

Content is broken down into specific types – so you can work with pages, blog posts, and more as discrete entities.

When retrieving bulk content, these granular endpoints also offer faster speeds (up to 30x). Our new cursor-based pagination allows quick iteration through content, instead of offset-based pagination.

This release includes support for Connect, OAuth 2.0 (3LO), and Forge apps.

You can see previous changelog entries related to Confluence Cloud REST API v2: one, two, three.

Announcement We’re updating our API token, API key, and Repository Access Token length

On January 18, 2023, we'll be extending the length of API tokens for Atlassian accounts, API keys, and Repository Access Tokens. This ensures new tokens and keys generated after this date are more secure and reliable. Tokens and keys created before January 18, 2023 won’t be affected.

Deprecation Notice Start issuing issuers with native value in OAuth tokens

On the Apr 17, 2023, the value of the issuer claim of OAuth access and refresh tokens will be:

  1. Updated from Auth0 (https://atlassian-account-prod.pus2.auth0.com/)

  2. Changed to the native Atlassian value (auth.atlassian.com).

Currently, this is not specified in our API documentation. For this reason, we don’t expect you to verify OAuth token issuer claims as Auth0. We're giving 3 months for the deprecation period until Apr 17, 2023.

Deprecation Notice Get user accountIds REST API

We are deprecating the Get user accountIds REST API in Confluence Cloud.

On July 12, 2023, the GET /wiki/rest/api/user/bulk/migration endpoint will be removed. If you require this endpoint for GDPR-related migrations from usernames/userkeys to Atlassian Account IDs, make sure to complete them before this date.

More details

In 2018, we deprecated usernames and user keys as valid forms of user identification in the REST API, in order to improve user privacy in accordance with GDPR. These forms of user identification were removed in April 2019.

We introduced this endpoint in March 2019 to enable developers to migrate these deprecated forms of identification to Atlassian Account IDs (AAIDs). Because its purpose is migration, it only supports user keys and usernames for users created before the GDPR-related deprecation was announced. Developers should have completed their migrations at this point, so we’re sunsetting this endpoint.

Announcement New Privacy & Security Tab coming to cloud app listings - questions available now

To streamline the cloud app assessment and procurement process for customers and Marketplace Partners, we plan to add a new Privacy & Security tab to each Marketplace cloud app listing.

You can start preparing information to fill out the new tab for your cloud apps using the questions documented here.

This new Privacy & Security tab will replace the Security Self Assessment for cloud apps. It will also replace the Security Self Assessment requirement for Cloud Fortified apps starting 6 months from when the API documentation and web form are released.

More details

We will follow up in the coming weeks (estimate: February) with API documentation and more detailed information on the web form to submit responses for your Privacy & Security tabs. We plan to make the new tab live for customers in March 2023.

In the meantime, you can start preparing responses for the tab using the questions documented here.

For customers that have security, compliance, and privacy requirements, this new tab on Atlassian Marketplace will provide key details about cloud apps in a consistent and discoverable place. It will also help Marketplace Partners more easily showcase investments in cloud app privacy and security.
