CLI command for linking attachments

Hello everybody,

Does the Confluence Command line Interface provide a command for setting a link on a page to a attachment??

I tried the "addAttachment" but it just move the attachment to the page.

Greetings David

Not sure what you are trying to do, but, if you need to change the page source in any way (like adding links etc...), you need to use storePage. You can retrieve the existing source using getPageSource.

Would it be something like confluence.bat --action storePage --space "space" --title "title" --content "[data.png|This is a picture] ??^^

For example i load an attachement on a page with "--loadFiles". This Attachement can be downloaded if you click on the paperclip symbol but i want that the file is linked on that page. You know what i mean?

So how would i use the storePage command in this case? The parameters --space and --title are clear but what do i use for content/file ??

Ok that would work, but if i use the command --storePage the new content replaces the old one!

If I use "--storepage" with adding new content, the new content replaces the old one. Is it possible to just attach the new content after the old ??

Use getPageSource to get the existing source, append whatever you want, then storePage

You could try https://github.com/leonardinius/atlassian-rest-cli to script it, if you are ok to script groovy code around Confluence API.
