Update page with Rest API returns 200 but the page is not updated

I used Google App Script and Rest API to update a Confluence page.

Firstly, i use GET method to get the page information with (,version).

Then, i use PUT method to update the page information like below

var data = {
"id": "123456",
"title": "My title",
"space": {
"key": "MySpace"
"type": "page",
"storage": {
"value": "my text",
"version": {
"number": currentBodyData.version.number + 1

var response = UrlFetchApp.getRequest("",{
method: 'PUT',
headers: {
"Authorization": "Basic " + token,
"Content-Type": "application/jsonl; charset=utf-8"
body: JSON.stringify(data)


Response has the code 200 but the Confluence page is not updated.

Thanks for your help.

Hey @Guillaume Sinnaeve 

First thought is, that you updated an older version. Did you check that? 

And the second thought was, that you do not update the version number, but at a second look, I saw that you do. 

Does this happen to all pages, you want to edit via REST? 

Also the history didn't change? 

Regards, Dominic

Hey @Dominic Lagger ,

Thanks for your reply.

At this moment, i only do my test on one specific page.

Regarding the version number, I always get the page information first and add 1 to the version number when I want to do the update.

Regarding the history, when I check the settings of my page, I still have the version number before the update. It's not changing.

Best regards

Hey @Dominic Lagger ,

I solved my issue by used the function UrlFetchApp.fetch and used "payload" options instead of body in the request.

Thanks for your help.
