I am trying to access pages via the `atlassian-python-api` library in Python. I have read through this page on authentication and tried every method, but none of them have worked for me. Each attempt, I get a 401. I have created a personal access token both through my Atlassian account, as well as directly on Confluence. Below is a code snippet - my assumption is that I am getting 401 every time due to the 2FA requirement. What is the right way to fix this so I can get access to my organization's Confluence pages via python?
Additionally, is there a login method that is something similar to opening a browser and having the user login to their Confluence account there, instead of using an API token?
Hi Amaan, I was able to make my own solution, which unfortunately didn't use a placeholder, but is ultimately a better option. I ended up using selenium to create a web browser, then have the user log in, and once the user was logged in, I saved the cookies to a Netscape HTTP Cookies File format, and using those cookies to authenticate has worked fine.
@Matthew Kennedy welcome to the Atlassian Community.
This seems to be a question about Confluence rather than a question related to the add-on Questions for Confluence. I am moving this to the Confluence collection to get more eyes on this and hopefully an answer for you.
