Confluence REST API PUT Forbidden (403) Error

Hi, I'm using confluence wiki 7.4.4. Able to perform GET operation but not PUT.

I'm able to create/update page manually thru wiki web but not thru command below, so permission side should be already granted. (unless it is required FULL admin permission to run command below)

Command as below:

curl -v -H "Authorization: Bearer $key" -X PUT -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d' {"id":"1744849332","type":"page","title":"new page","space":{"key":"software"},"body":{"storage":{"value":"<p>SUCCESS</p>","representation":"storage"}},"version":{"number":10}}'

Output as below:

Error Message:


    "data": {

        "allowedInReadOnlyMode": true,

        "authorized": false,

        "errors": [],

        "successful": false,

        "valid": true


    "message": "Could not update Content of type : class com.atlassian.confluence.pages.Page with id 1744849332",

    "reason": "Forbidden",

    "statusCode": 403



Please advice. Thanks.
