Update page content having css styles with REST API

alex I'm New Here Apr 14, 2022

Does anyone know how to update the page content (with CSS style class) using the REST API. I have a requirement to programmatically update a confluence page using the REST API. The content i have is HTML. It all works fine except for what is specified in the <STYLE> tag. The <STYLE> tag gets completely stripped off. An example of what I tried is below.


"body": {
        "storage": {
            "value""<style>.intro {background-color: yellow;}</style><p><div class=\"intro\">CSS Test</div></p>",

Please note that I am able to get the styles working if I define the syle within the element. I am looking for a way to get it working by defining the style in the <style> tag so that I can reuse it.
