Updating Excel Attachment on Confluence won't save Edited

Marisa Voss May 04, 2018

For some reason my excel sheet will update, but by the time I attach it to Confluence the file reverts back to the original. What am I doing wrong here? Maybe because of my GET confuses it? So the POST reverts back somehow.. not sure. (EDIT added the requests in code)

Code: -------------------------

import json

import pandas as pd

import xlrd

import xlwt

import yaml

import requests

import logging

from openpyxl import Workbook

from openpyxl import load_workbook

from collections import defaultdict


config = yaml.load(open('config.yaml'))

username = config['confluence username']
password = config['confluence password']

x = pd.ExcelFile('items-list4.xlsx')
df = pd.read_excel(x, index_col=0)
target = load_workbook('items-list4.xlsx')
item_list = {}
count = 0
for i in df.index:
count = count + 1
item_list[count] = i

for x,y in item_list.items():
print(f"{x} - {y}")
choose = input("Choose item number you want to update: ")
curitm = item_list[int(choose)]
curqty = df.loc[item_list[int(choose)], 'Qty']
print(f"chosen value: {item_list[int(choose)]}")
print(f"value's quantity: {df.loc[item_list[int(choose)], 'Qty']}")

#updating the quantity
qtyin = input(f"Enter the new quantity number for {item_list[int(choose)]}: ")
df.loc[item_list[int(choose)], 'Qty'] = qtyin
curqty = qtyin

#creating the excel writer
wr= pd.ExcelWriter(x, engine='openpyxl') = target
df.to_excel(wr, "Sheet1", startcol=0, startrow=0, header=True, index=False) # THIS LINE FOR SOME REASON DOESN'T save, openpyxl is looking for an int?? 

req = requests.Session()

opener = open('items-list4.xlsx', 'rb')
att = {'file': opener}
headers = {'X-Atlassian-Token': 'nocheck'}

r1 = req.get("{}/content/{}/child/attachment".format(base_url, page_id), auth = (username, password)).json()

for r,y in r1.items():
       attachment_id = y[0]['id']

r2 ="{}/content/{}/child/attachment".format(base_url, page_id), headers=headers, auth = (username, password), files = att)
if (r2.status_code < 300):


Below is the error:

Hi Marisa,

Is it possible there is an integer where there should be a different data type? The error I am focussed on is:

AttributeError: 'int' object has no attribute 'write'

I found a Stack Overflow post about that error that may help: AttributeError: 'int' object has no attribute 'write'

Looking forward to hearing whether it helps.
