How do a I get a list of all attachment versions using the Confluence Rest API?


I'm trying to figure out how to get a list of all the versions of an attachment using the rest api.  In particular, the version number, date and time of each version.  I've tried variations on the rest api url, but haven't had much luck.  I'm probably making a simple mistake.

Things I've tried:

rest/api/content/<Attachment ID>/history

rest/api/content/<Page ID with attachments>/descendant?expand=attachment

rest/api/content/<Page ID with attachments>/child/attachment?expand=container,operations,children,restrictions,history,version,descendants,space

Thank you,

Hello R,

From reviewing your notes and the endpoints you’ve attempted, you should be able to get what you need from the last endpoint you listed. This endpoint should be able to provide what you’re looking for with the expands:

GET /rest/api/content/{id}/child/attachment

Example of what to use:

This should give your information in a format which will include version and when (this is the date).

Please let us know if this example is helpful in getting your attachment information.

but if the document has n versions for example 9 versions .. how can I list when each version was last updated.....or created....
I found,history.previousVersion&version=1


but just list the previous version of  the current one

Is this possible?
