Confluence API. How get page content with Python?


I need to get the table from page in confluence and use it in Jupyter Notebook. I read the documentation and tried using examples.

But when I run request 

params = (
('expand', ''),
response = requests.get('', params=params, auth=('login', 'pass'))

I get empty response.

Can anyone help me?

You may use the atlassian-python-api module from

use the confluence.get_page_by_id API (warning the html document has a typo for this API, it has no "self" parameter), make sure to set the expand parameter to ""

The API then returns d, a dictionary where the page view storage content is located in d['body']['storage']['value']

Hi @Oleg Gonshtein 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community :)

I'm not the best with Python coding, but I believe I can help you.

Since you are using the requests library, I'm assuming you already installed it using pip.

The below script should get you the page contents.

import requests

contentApiUrl = '/rest/api/content'
# Change these based on your instance
confluenceBaseUrl = 'http://localhost:6740/c740'
pageId = '3309573'
username = 'admin'
password = 'admin'

requestUrl = '{confluenceBaseUrl}{contentApiUrl}/{pageId}?'.format(confluenceBaseUrl = confluenceBaseUrl, contentApiUrl = contentApiUrl, pageId = pageId)
print requestUrl

requestResponse = requests.get(requestUrl, auth=(username, password))

print requestResponse.json()


A search for other Community posts will certainly find some more elaborated Python scripts, such as in this post.


I hope that helps.

Kind regards,
Thiago Masutti
