How to move a page in Confluence with Python API

I am trying to copy a page to one space to another INCLUDING the attachments. I works to copy the whole page with this code: 

#I want to easily copy a page from one space to another space
page_id = confluence.get_page_id("MARLENETES", "NewMarlene(1)")

# retrieve the page, including its content.
page_c = confluence.get_page_by_id(page_id, expand='')

# the body HTML
body = page_c['body']['storage']['value']

parent_id = confluence.get_page_id("NB", "halli2")

for i in range(1, 2):
print('new test'.format(i))

# use the same above to retrieve the parent page's id.
confluence.create_page('MARLENETES', 'NewMarlene({})'.format(i), body, parent_id, type='page', representation='storage', editor='v2')


But the problem is that any images included in the page are not copied. In stackoverflow I found this answer:

I don't want to accept that it "just doesn't work" with Python. Has anybody solved the problem?

Hello @Marlene Pirker , 

If I understand correctly you are trying to clone a Confluence page via REST API using the  Atlassian Python API.

Now, if this is correct I can tell you that:


In other words, you should be able to make this work by writing the code to run the REST API calls in Python without using the Atlassian Python API.


Also, I would like to mention that our developers released a new REST API endpoint to copy a page with all the attachments that I believe it's exactly what you are looking for:

Copy single page

POST /wiki/rest/api/content/{id}/copy

Copies a single page and its associated properties, permissions, attachments, and custom contents....


Please review the documentation for the above endpoint and let me know if you have further questions.



Thank you! I will read the documentation and will reach out if I have further questions.
