How to authenticate to confluence with PAT using PowerShell?

Is there a way to authenticate to Confluence using a Personal Access Token with PowerShell? I don't see a method using the ConfluencePS module.  My connection script uses that PowerShell module via the Set-ConfluenceInfo method, but there does not seem to be a way to use the PAT with it.

Hi @Dennis A_ 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

ConfluencePS is maintained by a community unrelated to Atlassian. More information can be found in .

Checking their documentation I don't see something specific to authenticate with PAT on Confluence Server/DC.

However, on the server configuration there seems to be a possibility to include http headers on every request, on which you might be able to configure your user's PAT.

See for more information on that configuration.

I hope that helps.

Kind regards
