I haven't gotten to use the Confluence cloud API at all and figured someone may have a working example of a CURL command that updates a confluence page?
Specifically, I want to add an Issue Filter Macro and apply a JQL.
Happy to help with that! First, you'll need to generate an API token if you haven't already.
You can find an example of the call you need from our documentation below:
According to this, your cURL command would be:
curl -u <EMAIL>:<API_TOKEN> -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '<REQUEST_BODY_HERE>' -X PUT https://<NAME>.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/content/<PAGE-ID>
"value": "<p><ac:structured-macro ac:name=\"jira\" ac:schema-version=\"1\" ac:macro-id=\"2522710c-30ab-4f0d-ad7b-f3beb63728a4\"><ac:parameter ac:name=\"server\">System JIRA</ac:parameter><ac:parameter ac:name=\"columns\">key,summary,type,created,updated,due,assignee,reporter,priority,status,resolution</ac:parameter><ac:parameter ac:name=\"maximumIssues\">20</ac:parameter><ac:parameter ac:name=\"jqlQuery\">project=TRP </ac:parameter><ac:parameter ac:name=\"serverId\">f2a1787f-9df0-35e5-adf4-7167694a8392</ac:parameter></ac:structured-macro></p>",
Above, the "macro ID" and "server ID" are generated per instance. If you're not sure what your macro ID and server ID are, then you can insert a Jira Issues Macro in a page in Confluence manually, and then view the Storage Format (... > View Storage Format) in order to obtain that information for the future.
Additionally, you could call https://<NAME>.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/content/<PAGE-ID>?expand=body.storage and obtain the information in the same way.
Let me know if you have any trouble with that.
It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
