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}}' https://wiki.ith.ABC.com/rest/api/content/1744849332

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.

Same problem as OP, no solution yet (GETs work, PUT/POSTs don't and give 403)

Hi @CK Yiew

It looks like a similar user had the same issue and were able to resolve it.  Here is the post: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/403-forbidden-error-when-using-POST-method-to-access-rest-api/qaq-p/642248

The post you linked is about using the framework. The OP there actually says that he doesn't have the issue with CURL, so this is a separate issue.

I'm having the same problem and still haven't figured it out, @CK Yiew did you find a solution since you originally posted?
