Attaching image to Confluence page via restful API (Python) Edited


I'm trying to attach image files to an existing Confluence page from Python, using the restful API. Other requests I am making (creating or updating pages) work fine, but I keep a getting a 500 Server Error whenever sending the POST request for attaching images.

I don't see what I'm doing wrong, but I also have very little HTTP experience. Here's my little bit of code: 

with open(filePath, 'rb') as fp:
# I know I am getting either .jpg or .png here, just extracting that info for the contentType
contentType = 'image/%s' % os.path.splitext(filePath)[1].replace(".", "").lower()
contentType = str(contentType.replace("jpg", "jpeg"))

files = {'file': (filePath, fp, contentType)}
headers = {'X-Atlassian-Token': 'nocheck'}

# url, user, password and pageID are all correct values
r = + "/%s/child/attachment" % str(pageID),
headers=headers, files=files,
auth=(user, password))

Solved this, the problem seemed to simply be "nocheck" instead of "no-check".

Bonus question though: is there any way to disable e-mail notifications when attaching or deleting attachements to a page?

I tried adding:

data={'version': {'minorEdit': True}}

 But that doesn't seem to have an effect.
