How to search for a page in cloud version of confluence using REST API Edited

I am using Rest API examples to search a page in confluence. 

It is working fine when i use my work confluence url but when I use cloud version of confluence, it is failing with below error, error description is not clear. 

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 48, in <module>
search_word(confluence=confluence, word=WORD)
File "", line 26, in search_word
for answer in answers.get('results'):
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'get'


Thanks in advance for your help!

The error AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'get' is misleading and usually occurs due to authentication error or when you pass incorrect password as mentioned on this link:

On Cloud instance of Confluence, your request should include the correct token 

You have to remember that using API password is not the same password you are passing using UI.
On API password == api key generated in

You can also refer to this page:

Thank you, using API token resolved the issue.
