How to use RESTfull PUT to update a page? Edited

I can create the page with a command like:

curl -D- -u 'U:P' -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d @DOC.json "https://url/wiki/rest/api/content?title=Test+Doc&spaceKey=MD"

 

This works! And the doc is created. Then I goto the page in a browser and get it id?

https://url/wiki/spaces/MD/pages/4784186/Test+Doc

 

Then I use a GET to get the data using the id 4784186

curl -D- -u 'U:P' -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://url/wiki/rest/api/content/4784186

 

And I get info about the page:

{"id":"4784186","type":"page","status":"current","title":"Test Doc","space":{"id":196609,"key":"MD","name":"xxxxx","type":"global","status":"current","_expandable":{"settings":"/rest/api/space/MD/settings","metadata":"","operations":"","lookAndFeel":"/rest/api/settings/lookandfeel?spaceKey=MD","permissions":"","icon":"","description":"","theme":"/rest/api/space/MD/theme","history":"","homepage":"/rest/api/content/196610"},"_links":{"webui":"/spaces/MD","self":"https://.../wiki/rest/api/space/MD"}},"history":{"latest":true,"createdBy":{"type":"known","accountId":"5d9b7a4af8c67f0dbff6b290","accountType":"atlassian","email":"u@comp.com","publicName":"user","profilePicture":{"path":"/wiki/aa-avatar/5d9b7a4af8c67f0dbff6b290","width":48,"height":48,"isDefault":false},"displayName":"Craig Smith","_expandable":{"operations":"","personalSpace":""},"_links":{"self":"https://.../wiki/rest/api/user?accountId=5d9b7a4af8c67f0dbff6b290"}},"createdDate":"2019-10-29T20:38:35.616Z","_expandable":{"lastUpdated":"","previousVersion":"","contributors":"","nextVersion":""},"_links":{"self":"https://.../wiki/rest/api/content/4784186/history"}},"version":{"by":{"type":"known","accountId":"5d9b7a4af8c67f0dbff6b290","accountType":"atlassian","email":"user@comp.com","publicName":"name","profilePicture":{"path":"/wiki/aa-avatar/5d9b7a4af8c67f0dbff6b290","width":48,"height":48,"isDefault":false},"displayName":"Craig Smith","_expandable":{"operations":"","personalSpace":""},"_links":{"self":"https://.../wiki/rest/api/user?accountId=5d9b7a4af8c67f0dbff6b290"}},"when":"2019-10-29T20:38:35.616Z","friendlyWhen":"yesterday at 4:38 PM","message":"","number":1,"minorEdit":false,"syncRev":"0.confluence$content$4784186.2","syncRevSource":"synchrony-ack","confRev":"confluence$content$4784186.5","_expandable":{"collaborators":"","content":"/rest/api/content/4784186"},"_links":{"self":"https://.../wiki/rest/api/content/4784186/version/1"}},"macroRenderedOutput":{},"extensions":{"position":1872770356},"_expandable":{"childTypes":"","container":"/rest/api/space/MD","metadata":"","operations":"","children":"/rest/api/content/4784186/child","restrictions":"/rest/api/content/4784186/restriction/byOperation","ancestors":"","body":"","descendants":"/rest/api/content/4784186/descendant"},"_links":{"editui":"/pages/resumedraft.action?draftId=4784186","webui":"/spaces/MD/pages/4784186/Test+Doc","context":"/wiki","self":"https:/.../wiki/rest/api/content/4784186","tinyui":"/x/OgBJ","collection":"/rest/api/content","base":"https://.../wiki"}}

 

Then I try a PUT:

curl -D- -u 'U:P' -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d @Text.json "https://.../wiki/rest/api/content/4784186

 

I get a HTTP 400 response:

With the only detail message":"com.atlassian.confluence.api.service.exceptions.BadRequestException: content id mismatch"

 

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong. Any ideas on what to try?

 

Another try using the doc name:

Hello!

Thanks for including your multiple curl attempts and the output from said attempts. From reviewing what you’ve included I do see you don’t have the version incremented from the original GET call. With this said, you’ll need to increment the version number +1 from your GET call since a PUT method will create a new version. Further information on this is listed within the REST API docs;

version REQUIRED

object

The new version for the updated content. Set this to the current version number incremented by one, unless you are changing the status to 'draft' which must have a version number of 1.

Source documentation: PUT /wiki/rest/api/content/{id}

Please let us know if this helps to get past your response of 400.

Regards,
Stephen SIfers

Thanks Stephen! Yes, I kept at it and found that I needed to bump the version number to get the PUTs to work. Now I an working out a way to curl to the the current version number so I can bump it and use the next version number in the PUT.

 

Thanks again for the reply!
