Thank you for the announcement. I noticed the release date of the Confluence 8.3 beta release notes is March. It should be May, right?

Hi @Wendy

I didn’t find this information in the documentation, but will the REST API for the new version of spaces/site backup and restore be publicly described from version 8.3?


Well spotted @hirota.takayuki ! Yes, correct. The release date of 8.3.0-beta1 was 8 May 2023.

Hi @adam.labus, good question! I’ve passed it on to the team working on backup and restore and will get them to jump in with the answer.

Hi @adam.labus ,
Yes, REST API for backup/restore will be publicly available from 8.3. We already have it in 8.2 (link), but as it was under dark feature it wasn’t announced at that time. API will be slightly different in 8.3 as we have changed signature of some methods.


Thank you @IrinaTiapchenko @Wendy, that’s good news :slight_smile:
