How do I rename a confluence page using the api?

Try as I might, I can't find this in the docs. I have a series of pages that I would like to rename. There are hundreds, and what needs to be done (remove the last word in the title) is very simple, so I was hoping to automate it.

What is the secret?

Found it! I kept seeing the process for updating content and glossing it over because I wasn't thinking of the title as content...

can you share how you did it? 
I'm stuck with the same problem now...


I use atlassian-python-api to manipulate Confluence pages, here is my example for page moving to another parent with renaming, you can use my idea to understand how it works:


# Old page title
= 'Beautiful Page Title'

# Title that you want to change to
= f"Much More {old_title}"

# Title of parent page where you want to move page to
= 'New Home'

# Get ID for new parent page
parent_id = confluence.get_page_id(space=space, title=parent_title)

# Get old page contents
old_page_content = confluence.get_page_by_title(space=space, title=old_title, expand='body') # Old page contents

# Rename and move page, get updated content
new_page_content = confluence.update_page(old_page_content['id'], title=new_title, body=old_page_content['body'], parent_id=parent_id, type="page", representation="storage")
