List of admins of a defined space in Confluence Server REST API

Hi Guys,

I need to get the list of admins of a defined space in Confluence Server REST API.
I was using https://myServer/confluence/rpc/json-rpc/confluenceservice-v2/getSpacePermissionSets, but, it seems that it was deprecated.
Can you please give me the alternative API of it?

Many thanks,
Rosy

Hi @rosy.salame,

I believe there’s no REST API specifically for that purpose. However, you might want to check the Java route described in this documentation.

Cheers,
Ian

Hello @iragudo,

There is an API to fetch spaces’s property which can be found using the following here:
GET /wiki/rest/api/space/{spaceKey}/property/{key}

This yields a list of users in the permissions attribute which we are looking for as shown by an example:

{
  "id": 2154,
  "key": "<string>",
  "value": {},
  "version": {
    "when": "<string>",
    "message": "<string>",
    "number": 2154,
    "minorEdit": true
  },
  "space": {
    "id": 2154,
    "key": "<string>",
    "name": "<string>",
    "icon": {
      "path": "<string>",

I was wondering if you can help here. We are using the server and not the cloud version of Confluence and as such the equivalent API can be found here which I think should yield the same result. Unfortunately, it is not yielding any result and is sort of misleading because they illustrate 2 URLs were one of them is working and the other is not.

  • GET /rest/experimental/space/TST/property?expand=space,version (Not Working)
  • GET /rest/space/{spaceKey}/property/{key} (Working)

@muhamed.yassine I have the same problem as you. Did you happen to find a solution at all?
