Search Confluence Cloud content via REST API by type and label and expand metadata


The goal is to retrieve all content from Confluence Cloud by type `page` and `label` containing `some-label` tag.

When searching Confluence using `cql` the query does return result set but does not include `metadata` (specifically `labels`), though `expand` key is explicitly passed to the query:"some-label"

What is the reason for `expand` being neglected? Or is the query itself misconfigured?

I used Confluence Search API Reference

Can you try

This returns an error:

(obviously I'm using different value as a label tag, but the format is the same `foo-bar`

{ "statusCode": 400, "data": { "authorized": false, "valid": true, "errors": [], "successful": false }, "message": "com.atlassian.confluence.api.service.exceptions.BadRequestException: Could not parse cql : label=some-label"}


@Stanisław Reduta This one worked for me.. give it a try if the problem is not resolved.
