Passing wiki markup via API from a file without adding explicit line breaks


I have been able to update a Confluence page via the API using the wiki storage type ("representation":"wiki") however everything goes in as a single line unless I explicitly add "\n" at the end of each line.  Is there a way to push this data without having to do that?

Hi Dennis,

Are you using some other character as a newline terminator when constructing your content?

Wiki markup is line-sensitive so I'm not sure how you could get away without line terminators - but am curious what you are trying if you can share a snip of the wiki markup you are hoping to save.

The issue seemed to be with the ConfluencePS module I was using. I switched to a different one updated to use PAT ( and the problem was resolved. I had to add my PAT to the powershell module; I'll probably update the code to get that from an encrypted  file.
