i am writting a powershell script in bamboo in order to post html data to the confluence child page

i am writting a powershell script in bamboo in order to post html data to the confluence child page.

The script is passing in bamboo, but i am not able to see data in confluence. Please help.


$ConfluenceURL = ""

#Where the page gets created
$spaceKey = 'space_name' #Space Key
$parentId = "Parent_id" #ID of parent page
$pageTitle = 'pager1'

$pageContent = 'welcome'

#Generate post request as PowerShell objects
$post = @{
type = 'page'
"ancestors" = @(
@{"id" = $parentId}
title = $pageTitle
space = @{ key = $spaceKey}
body = @{
storage = @{
value = '$pageContent'
representation = 'storage'

#Header for authentification
$base64AuthInfo = [Convert]::ToBase64String([Text.Encoding]::ASCII.GetBytes(("{0}:{1}" -f $username,$password)))
$headers = @{Authorization=("Basic {0}" -f $base64AuthInfo)}

$ContentType = "application/json";
[System.Net.ServicePointManager]::ServerCertificateValidationCallback = {$true} ;
[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls12

#Post request to Confluence
try {
Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $ConfluenceURL -Method POST -ContentType "application/json" -Body $post Headers $headers
} catch {$_.Exception.Response }

Hi there - 

Doing this type of stuff programmatically can be cumbersome.  When I did something similar a few years ago, I used postman to get my request proper FIRST, then translated that over to powershell.  This helps AH LOHT!

Also, since you are running as an unattended script, you will need the invoke-webrequest -usebasicparsing *otherwise it will attempt to load the profile in the request, which likely wont fly for the user executing bamboo.

Good luck
