I want to read content from my organization a confluence page using REST api through python

my code looks like this:

import requests
from requests.auth import HTTPBasicAuth
contentApiUrl = '/rest/api/content'
# Change these based on your instance
confluenceBaseUrl = ''
pageId = '26586726'
username = '****'
password = '*****'

requestUrl = '{confluenceBaseUrl}{contentApiUrl}/{pageId}/?'.format(confluenceBaseUrl = confluenceBaseUrl, contentApiUrl = contentApiUrl, pageId = pageId)
print (requestUrl)

requestResponse = requests.get(requestUrl, auth=HTTPBasicAuth(username, password))


<Response [404]>
b'{"statusCode":404,"data":{"authorized":false,"valid":true,"allowedInReadOnlyMode":true,"errors":[],"successful":false},"message":"No content found wit
h id: ContentId{id=26586726}","reason":"Not Found"}'

The pageId , userid and password is correct.

but the catch is when i hit the url mentioned in requestUrl through browser it return the JSON but when i call the url through it gives 404 error.

Hi @shantanu kumar ,

Please confirm that you have access to the page. The documentation states:

STATUS 404 - Returned if there is no content with the given id, or if the calling user does not have permission to view the content.

@edwin yes, I can access the confluence page through browser.
