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?

Hi!

You can write something yourself using the REST API 

curl -v -S -u admin@example.com:password -X POST -H "X-Atlassian-Token: no-check" -F "file=@myfile.txt" -F "comment=this is my file" "https://your-domain.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/content/3604482/child/attachment

The above is taken from this page containing lots of examples: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/confluence/rest-api-examples/

Alternatively you can also use a plugin like Bob Swift's Command Line Interface: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/org.swift.confluence.cli/server/overview

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,

Chris

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