Adding link to attachment in Confluence Page Via Rest API Edited



I need to know if it is possible via rest api to show an attachment on a confluence page as if it were a kind of hyperlink, with a custom text.

I'm trying to do this but it doesn't work for me:

node {
stage("Create hyperlink to attachment"){
sh """
curl -s -D- -H "Authorization: Basic XXXXXXXXXX:XXXXXXXXXXXX" -X PUT -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d'{
"id": "84652952",
"type": "page",
"status": "current",
"title": "Prueba-Jenkins",
"body": {
"storage": {
<ri:attachment ri:filename="FILENAME.docx"/>
"representation": "storage"
}' https://XXXXXXXXXXXXXX/confluence/rest/api/content/84652952


Is this way of working correct?


Thanks in advance,

Adolfo S.

I have the same question. 

@Adolfo Santiago Risquez Did you get the answer?

@Ganesh Kumar 


Below CURL command did the trick for me. I used shell script and for convenience I have entered every value in a new line, in actual I executed this as a one liner.

Key things to note


  • Escape any double quotes if any inside the storage value part. I have highlighted the portions in BOLD where I used '\'  to escape double quotes 
  • Mention the version number correctly. It has to be +1 of your current page version

curl -u 'username:password' -X PUT -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{
"id": "00000000",
"type": "page",
"title": "New page",
"body":{"storage":{"value":"<table class=\"wrapped\"><colgroup><col /></colgroup><tbody><tr><th><h3>Hyperlink Text</h3></th></tr><tr><td><ac:link><ri:attachment ri:filename=\"Test.csv\" /><ac:plain-text-link-body><![CDATA[Bitbucket_AD_Userlist]]></ac:plain-text-link-body></ac:link></td></tr></tbody></table>",
