Problems with basic page generation with Python and Confluence API



I try to generate my first Confluence page with following code:


from atlassian import Confluence


confluenceBaseUrl = myConfluenceBaseUrl
pageId = ...

print("connect to confluence ...")
confluence = Confluence(url=confluenceBaseUrl,username=myuser,password=mypass)

status = confluence.create_page(
    title='Made by Python',
    body='This is the body')

As a result I get:

    requests.exceptions.HTTPError: Could not create content with type page

I have write access to the parent page and user and pass are checked. What am I doing wrong?

I hope this is the right place to ask for this.

It was a problem with the name of the SPACE, that has to exist - this was not clear to me.
