You could read the content of a page with the body expanded.


Please refer to the Confluence REST API examples for more details:

And you'll get Value with unbreakable line which is actually the content of page.

Is it possible to get better formatting?

Same question. If the page has an index and links to the sections on the same page. How to directly access the data content on links through the REST API's?


To be precise, Say I have a page id 12345, on confluence, if I am accessing :

http://helloworld/wiki/pages/12345/XYZ#XYZ-abcdabcd  this on the url, how do we access the underlined part through REST API?

Like # people like this

this is what im trying to figure out as well

The Atlassian API doesn't have a way to return just the part of the page following an anchor. The best you can do is get the page by the space and title, then parse for the html anchor.

Assuming your URL has a space, like:


I think you would do it with

page=confluence.get_page_by_title('SPC', 'XYZ', expand='')
