RPC Confluence export fails with TYPE_PDF

Has any one come across this issue?


xmlrpclib.Fault: <Fault 0: 'java.lang.Exception: com.atlassian.confluence.rpc.RemoteException: Invalid export type: [TYPE_PDF]'>


I am trying to write an automated export tool for a space.  I can export it with TYPE_HTML and TYPE_PDF


I am using the latest confluence 5.7.1

Hi Dan,

Did you get anywhere with PDF exports using XML-RPC? I need something similar and would be helpful for any help on the topic? My email is xecaz@hotmail.com if you feel like helping out.


Kind regards


Hi Jonas, it works, it just uses a different endpoint as the regular API. Click the link in my answer above for more details.

Hi Dan,

If you look at the documentation, you'll see that TYPE_PDF is no longer supported through the regular space export XML-RPC endpoint, instead you have to use a slightly different URL, as it runs through a separate plugin.  See this page for more details:
