In the past, I was able to authenticate against my Confluence Cloud instance using Basic HTTP Authentication. It seems that recently the authentication mechanism has been changed to no longer support this.
Is there any way to authenticate against the confluence cloud rest api without making a plugin?
Likewise. We are attempting to automate some document editing / publication in Confluence, and attempts to authenticate with basic in our cloud instance have always met with the same response:
Basic Authentication Failure - Reason : AUTHENTICATION_DENIED
description This request requires HTTP authentication.
When attempting to use XML-RPC instead (hoping to grab a session cookie I can piggyback on top of), I get an error that states I've had too many unsuccessful login attempts and that I should try to use HTTP authentication to reset the login count.
Attempts to capture information at http://<instance>/wiki/rest/api/user/current from a browser work without issue, but otherwise everything fails.
