Trying to login in Confluence using python


I am new to confluence and I have been given a task to access our Company's  Confluence's pages programatically.

I found about the REST API call and python's atlassian-python-api  library but none of them seems to be working for me.

The url of confluence page which I am trying to access looks like this :

I made below curl request :

curl -u myLoginusername:myLoginpassword-X GET "" | python -mjson.tool

but I get below response:

% Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed
100 4933 100 4933 0 0 4933 0 0:00:01 --:--:-- 0:00:01 39464
No JSON object could be decoded


when i use atlassian-python-api  in my python script :

from atlassian import Confluence
confluence = Confluence(    url='',    
status = confluence.get_page_properties(page_id=80628668,)
with open('test.html','w'as f:        f.write(status)


I am redirected to the login page. Can someone please tell me what am I doing wrong in both cases?

P.S. : I dont have option to create API token in my account.
