Export page to pdf using rest call


I'd like to save a page to pdf using a request call. I know the page url, including the page id, but I don't know the request or wiki call.

I haven't been able to find any confluence rest calls related to pdfs.

I'm using Python and the Rest API.

I'm working on the same type of issue but only for pdf's.  If you're using Python, you can use the confluence package ( and the export_page function for pdf.


As the doc indicates, if you're using Confluence Cloud, make sure when you instantiate confluence that you set the api_version to cloud.

confluence = Confluence( url='', api_version='cloud', username=username, password=password)

It works for me, export the pdf.

This is how I solved it. I used curl and sent this command where pageId= 123456 was the ID number of the page. I call that line from a Windows DOS prompt via Matlab.

curl -v -L -u "user_name:password" -H "X-Atlassian-Token: no-check" "https://confluence/spaces/flyingpdf/pdfpageexport.action?pageId=123456" --output "c:\output_dir\confluence_title.pdf"

Is it a typo that your pageId is "23456" in your description and "123456" in your curl command, or do you need to add a "1" at the beginning?

Yes, that was a typo. I fixed it and thanks for the catch.

Does it work? I think it just renders a page with link to download ..
