Manipulate confluence table by Java API

Hi guys,

I need to insert rows into table dynamically by Java API but not Rest API.

When I implementing it through saveContentEntity(ContentEntityObject obj, SaveContext saveContext)  or  saveContentEntity(ContentEntityObject obj, ContentEntityObject origObj, SaveContext saveContext) , it throws org.hibernate.HibernateException: Unable to resolve owner of loading collection [[com.atlassian.confluence.core.ContentEntityObject.contentProperties#819205]] for second level caching .

Could somebody please give me some help? or some sample code for manipulating table dynamically  by Java API

Thanks in advance.

Try this solution:

pageManager.saveNewVersion(targetPage, new PageModification(newPageContent), getDefaultSaveContext());


class PageModification implements Modification<Page> {
        private String newBody;

        public PageModification(String newBody) {
            this.newBody = newBody;

        public void modify(Page page) {
            page.setVersionComment("Page uploaded with same templates.");


private SaveContext getDefaultSaveContext() {
        return DefaultSaveContext.builder().suppressNotifications(true).updateLastModifier(true).suppressEvents(false).build();

thanks, but it still throw the same exception,  ::>_<::

In which module do you use it?

Macro? XWork? Something else?

job-config module.

Is it up to module type? Could you please give me more details?

I implementd the same function on the Macro and Job-config module separately, and only Macro module works well.
It seems only Macro module support this approach ,is it correct?

If you execute any user related actions from Job Module, you have to SET some active user or will receive an Exception.
