Token not work properly in my script

Hi There:

I am currently working on a tool to create a abbrivation database, and one of the source is the wiki pages in, I tried the create a token to access the wiki pages through scripts, but it will return page not found (attached), even I followed the instruction to use curl command like "url --user wei.zhou@irdeto. com:MY-TOKEN" it still get the same result, but if I login manully, iI can access the wiki page. could you please advise is there any configuration I was missing?

Best Regards

Hi Wei, 

The API Tokens that you can generate at can only be used for REST API Access to your Atlassian Cloud Instances; you cannot use it to directly access Confluence. 

If you need to pull the content of your Confluence pages into another program, you'll need to use a Different URL; try using: 

curl -X GET 
--user emailaddress:TOKEN

 For your particular page, try: 


Please note that pulling content via the REST API does not return a 'pretty' output and instead the JSON that makes up the page. 


Hi Shawn:


Thanks a lot for your reply!

I just tried your suggestions and it works for me, json format is good enough, really appreciated!



Best Regards


Hi Shawn:


Do you also know where I can find the definitions if the rest apis? (e.g. schema, parameters) becuase I found there still some part is missing from the body, it can be seen on the webui but not in json response. I found the rest api is quit useful for my project, so if I can get more information about it could be really helpful.

Thanks in advance!


Best Regards

Hi Wei, 

We publish a Doc that covers our Confluence API Endpoints and some of the parameters that can be expanded upon in the calls.
