We are having issue when accessing our Confluence rest api via curl command using basic authentication. The rest api in Confluence are correctly configured but when accessing the rest api, we are getting 401 UNAUTHORIZED AUTHENTICATION_FAILED. We are using SSO and the user that we are currently using to access the rest api is an internal directory user (user manually created in Confluence).
Below are the curl commands we've tried:
* curl -u <username>:<password> -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" "https://<confluenceurl>/wiki/rest/api/content/"
* curl -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Basic <token>" "https://<confluenceurl>/wiki/rest/api/content?os_authType=basic"
* curl commands mentioned in https://www.smartics.eu/confluence/display/PDAC1/REST+Login+to+Confluence+with+cURL (using cookies and config file)
We are using Confluence v5.8.5 and Confluence http authenticator v2.6.1 (https://github.com/chauth/confluence_http_authenticator). By the way, the confluence api urls are accessible via browser and we are getting the json result.
Is anyone encountered the same issue and know the resolution? Is this a bug in Confluence with using http authenticator?
sending using POSTMAN.
Status as "200 ok" but not authenticating as expected, even accepts incorrect credentials.
