Scriptrunner (confluence) - Export page to pdf, then email to others

Version: 6.15.7

Background: I'm a new(ish) jira admin who just got into scriptrunner and am having a really difficult time understanding what I need to do to combine all these components.


I'm trying to set up a script to run on a schedule, take a certain confluence page and export it as a pdf, then send that pdf in an email to various users.


I managed to get the email portion working using code/info from here:

Sending e-mail from Confluence with Groovy, Script... (


Here is the documentation from the plugin I am using for the pdf export which I have not been able to get working yet as I'm stuck on the email attachment part so I can check if this works:

Export content via REST API (




My question(s) is this:

How do I run this cURL request in a script, save(?) the file somewhere that the script can use it again, then attach that file to the email in the script. 


This is what I currently have going, minus some details. I keep running into the error "FileNotFoundException" which from some googling and reading just says I didn't generate a file in the location it is trying to pull a file from? I think?

assert adminUser 

assert AuthenticatedUserThreadLocal.get().name == "admin"

}, adminUser)

new URL("https://confluence.<local>.com/plugins/servlet/scroll-pdf/api/public/1/export-sync?templateId=com.k15t.scroll.pdf.default-template-confluence&pageId=41222495");
ReadableByteChannel rbc = Channels.newChannel(website.openStream());
FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream("date + '%m-%d-%Y' pageTitlePdf.pdf");
fos.getChannel().transferFrom(rbc, 0, Long.MAX_VALUE);

Path p1 = Paths.get("date + '%m-%d-%Y' pageTitlePdf.pdf");
File attachment = p1.toFile();
def confluenceMailServerManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(ConfluenceMailServerManager)
SMTPMailServer mailServer = confluenceMailServerManager.getDefaultSMTPMailServer();
if (mailServer != null) {
Email email = new Email("");
email.setSubject("page title date +'%m-%d-%Y'");

Multipart multipart = new MimeMultipart();

MimeBodyPart attachmentBodyPart = new MimeBodyPart();
DataSource source = new FileDataSource(attachment);
attachmentBodyPart.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(source));

attachmentBodyPart.setContent("hello world", "text/plain;charset=utf-8");



} else {
throw new RuntimeException("no mail server!!!");



Any guidance or links to relevant questions would be greatly appreciated, I've spent way more time on this than I should have already

Hi @Jordan Hauser

If you are still having issues, I suggest you contact adaptivist support directly if you are paying for this app.

Good luck.
