Thank you for contacting us! Happy to help with this.

Can you tell me what REST call you're using where you are getting the page not found error? 

What version of Confluence is this for?

What user are you running the queries with? Does the user have permissions in Confluence to create a page in that Space?



Hi @Shannon Spaniol 

I wanted to get the confluence page content with the help of REST API.For that I am using the below REST API


but always I am getting "Page Not Found error".

For other API's also getting the same error.

Our confluence version is 6.9.0 and I am having admin access, though I am not able to get the results.

I tried in server with curl command as follows

$curl -u sushma:sushma http://<confluenceURL>/confluence/rest/api/content/13336836?

Error :

curl: (7) Failed connect to <url>:8090; Connection timed out

Can you help me to resolve this ?



Hello Sushma,

Your query is right; you might be using an incorrect page ID.

Check How to Get Confluence Page ID to ensure you're using the right page ID. Additionally, your Connection timed out error could be another issue. For some reason, you're not able to reach Confluence from your terminal. You'll want to ping your base URL from the terminal and ensure that works.

Lastly, I wanted to make sure that you were aware of the important security advisories that were announced this past spring. Have a read through Confluence CVEs and Common Questions. You will need to ensure that your Confluence instance is no longer on an affected version. This means you should upgrade to one of the versions listed there or higher, such as the latest release of Confluence.

Let us know if you have any further questions about this.
