I am Using Lumen micro-framework to consume confluence Rest API.

How To Create Client

We will create a private method, that will use to create connection with Confluence server.

var $confluenceAPI = "http://localhost:8080/confluence/rest/api/";
private function _client($endpoint) {
$base64 = base64_encode(username+ ":" + password);
$client = new Client([
'base_uri' => $endpoint,
'timeout' => 300,
'headers' => ['Content-Type' => 'application/json', "Accept" => "application/json", "Basic " + base64_encode(username+ ":" + password)
'http_errors' => false,
'verify' => false
return $client;

where is : username and password is you api credentials to access Confluence api.The $confluenceAPI variable is use to hold the confluence API host server name.

Service Method to Create Page

We will create service method to create page,Created a client method for rest api instance and post data to confluence server.

public function createPage() {
$parameters = array("type"=>"page", "title"=>"Test Page", "Space"=>array("key"=>"TST"), "body"=>array("storage"=>array("value"=>"This is a my new test page","representation"=>"storage")));
$client = $this->_client($this->confluenceAPI);
try {
$response = $client->post("content/", ['json' => $parameters])->getBody()->getContents();
return json_decode($response);
} catch(Exception $ex) {
return 'Unable to create page';
return 'Unable to create page';

We have created a page data variable and converted that data into json format, then we have sent data with request to confluence rest server to create page.The confluence api validated all posted data and create page, they will send confirmation message if the everything is fine otherwise send error message in json format.
