Which Rest API for Confluence okta enabled authentication?


The following Python code was working for Confluence basic authentication. However it was not working after we upgraded Confluence with okta enabled. Could you please suggest anything to fix it?

self.default_headers = {'content-type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'}
self.default_auth = (USERNAME, PASSWORD)

self.REST_API_URL = ''
self.REST_API_HEADERS = {'Accept': 'application/json'}
