Script Runner for Confluence - How to export a page to PDF or HTML with styling and inline images?

I am trying to write a script which can be used either as part of a REST api endpoint or as a scheduled job to export the full content of a page (read: layout and Images) either as a file (preferably PDF) or as (X)HTML.

The script I've got so far seems to only export basic content elements with no CSS formatting and no inline images, below is a copy of my script code:

 

import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.rest.common.CustomEndpointDelegate
import groovy.json.JsonBuilder
import groovy.transform.BaseScript

import javax.ws.rs.core.MultivaluedMap
import javax.ws.rs.core.Response
import javax.ws.rs.core.MediaType

import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.PageManager
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator


import java.lang.RuntimeException

@BaseScript CustomEndpointDelegate delegate

//End point name is the same as the method's name
getapipage(httpMethod: "GET", groups: ["confluence-administrators"]) { MultivaluedMap queryParams, String body ->
    
    def pageManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(PageManager)

    def page = pageManager.getPage("SPACE NAME","PAGE TITLE")
    return Response.ok(page.getBodyAsString(),MediaType.TEXT_HTML).build()

I've looked at using : DefaultXhtmlContent.convertWikiToView but I am not entirely sure if that is the way to go.

 

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated :)

If you're looking for a PDF export, you could probably use Confluence's built-in PDF exporter.

$confluenceBaseURL/spaces/flyingpdf/pdfpageexport.action?pageId=$yourPageID

You'd need to get the page ID, though, and it looks like you're working with the space / page title combination. So your script could do the work of getting the page and redirecting you to the built-in PDF exporter.

import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.PageManager
import com.atlassian.confluence.setup.settings.SettingsManager
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.rest.common.CustomEndpointDelegate
import groovy.transform.BaseScript

import javax.ws.rs.core.MultivaluedMap
import javax.ws.rs.core.Response

@BaseScript CustomEndpointDelegate delegate

//End point name is the same as the method's name
getapipage(httpMethod: "GET", groups: ["confluence-administrators"]) { MultivaluedMap queryParams, String body ->

    def pageManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(PageManager)

    def spaceKey = queryParams.getFirst("space").toString()
    def title = queryParams.getFirst("title").toString()
    log.debug("$spaceKey $title")
    def page = pageManager.getPage(spaceKey, title)

    def baseUrl = ComponentLocator.getComponent(SettingsManager).globalSettings.baseUrl
    def pdfUrl = "$baseUrl/spaces/flyingpdf/pdfpageexport.action?pageId=${page?.idAsString}"

    return Response.temporaryRedirect(new URI(pdfUrl)).build()
}

The redirect is a bit tedious, but it saves you the trouble of having to build an HTTP request, properly authenticate, and handle the SSL certs.
