6 new Group APIs and 2 Group API deprecations for Confluence Cloud

What are we doing?

The Confluence Cloud team has created 6 new Group APIs to enable site admins to perform CRUD operations on groups and group members. We are deprecating 2 existing Group APIs that are replaced by the new APIs.

During the deprecation period, the old APIs will still work, but we strongly recommend using the new APIs and we will redirect documentation links accordingly.

APIs to be deprecated:

APIs already added:


Instead of specifying the group name in path parameters /wiki/rest/api/group/{groupName}, group names can be specified in the query parameters when requesting to /wiki/rest/api/group/by-name?name={groupName}

Same case for retrieving members of a group.
