Accessing Confluence from python


I am trying to connect to a confluence but get this error [WinError 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

Below, you'll find the code I am using.

Thank you in advance for your precious help.


from xmlrpc import client

CONFLUENCE_URL = "my-confluence-url/rpc/xmlrpc" #

# get this from the page url while editing
# e.g. ../editpage.action?pageId=132350005 <-- here
PAGE_ID = "1234"

# and write the new contents
client2 = client.Server(CONFLUENCE_URL, verbose=1)

auth_token = client2.confluence2.login(CONFLUENCE_LOGIN, CONFLUENCE_PASSWORD)
page = client2.confluence2.getPage(auth_token, PAGE_ID)
page['content'] = "!!!your content here!!!"
result = client2.confluence2.storePage(auth_token, page)

print("modification Done.")
