How do you access reactions from the content API?

When Confluence Cloud and Jira are integrated through Project Pages, the standard like reaction appears to be replaced by emoji reactions instead.

However, the presence of emoji reactions is not reflected in content metadata using expand=metadata.likes - 0 likes are reported and there aren’t any other expendables offered for reactions.

How do I access the emoji reactions via /wiki/rest/api/content ?

Hi James, I’m from the Confluence collaboration team that is adding reactions to the interface. There are some technical limitations with a public API for reactions that we are working through to be able to serve them through our REST APIs.

However, in the meantime we have not deprecated the likes API and you will still be able to receive any thumbsup reactions as likes through the current API. We are working through the issues with the Public APIs and hope to get that rolling soon as well.
