Receiving 404 when making request to REST endpoint

I have a Confluence plugin with two main modules: xhtml-macro and rest. The macro displays a button that, when clicked, should make a POST request to my REST endpoint: /rest/vimeo-validator/1.0/validate. However, I am getting a 404 error returned from this request.

The complete code for the plugin can be found here:

Any thoughts on what might be going on?

bah found it. You miss the “confluence” in the javascript:

            function (data, status) {
                console.log('status: ', status);
                console.log('data: ', data);

Your site is accessed by http://localhost:1990/confluence but you are posting in localhost:1990/rest…
Or even better change to

            function (data, status) {
                console.log('status: ', status);
                console.log('data: ', data);

to ensure that when you change url that won’t be a problem

Ah! Getting closer! Now I am getting a 403 (Forbidden). But I am using the @AnonymousAllowed annotation, so I’m not sure what is wrong…

Latest changes are in the repo:

What happens if you login?

Hmm, I’m not quite sure I know what you mean. I am already logged into the local installation of Confluence where I am testing the plugin. Is there something else?

As a sidenote you can’t/shouldn’t have anonymous allowed and change page data.
Remove everything except the system.out and the response. Are you getting hello world back?

@Panos, yes, I still get a 403 :confused:

public final Response post(final String json) {  
    return Response.ok(new ValidatorRestModel("Hello World")).build();

New thread: @AnonymousAllowed REST endpoint returns 403

Hi, I am looking for a similar solution can you please activate your git-hub link to access your code ?

Thanks in advance
