Script placing file on Confluence page

Is there a possibility to automatically place a number of files which are in a specific folder and place/attach them on/to an existing Confluence page?

You can write something yourself using the REST API 

curl -v -S -u -X POST -H "X-Atlassian-Token: no-check" -F "file=@myfile.txt" -F "comment=this is my file" "

The above is taken from this page containing lots of examples:

Alternatively you can also use a plugin like Bob Swift's Command Line Interface:

This would allow you something like: 


./confluence-cli  --action addAttachment  --space "zcliattachments"  --title "attachment page"  --content "attachment content"  --name "data.txt"  --comment "attachment comment"

Hope this helps,


Thanks Chris, I think with the examples I can get what I want.
