how to attach multiple images and files to create page in confluence rest api

I am writing rest api in confluence  to create page

and also want to attach images  in it

but image is not showing in page

my php curl is as below

public function create_content(){
$qbody = file_get_contents("php://input");
$ch = curl_init();

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "http://localhost:8090/rest/api/content/");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $qbody);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "admin" . ":" . "Abc@1234");

$headers = array();
$headers[] = "Content-Type: application/json";
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);

$result = curl_exec($ch);
if (curl_errno($ch)) {
echo 'Error:' . curl_error($ch);
curl_close ($ch);

Dear @Vidya Shevale,

afaik you cannot attach files/images to a page that does not exist or in other words, first create a page and then attach the files.

And you do not need to send the files base64 encoded - this will do curl for you.

Hope that helps. If not, please give me more details of what you exactly do.

So long


@Thomas Deiler  The fact that you are creating a new page, shouldn't it allow you to upload attachments with along with the new page data? Won't it be much better than having to make two calls to complete a page creation? Images are essentially page data,  For the image macro to work, the attachments should be present. Until the attachments are uploaded, the new page is incomplete. So Atlassian should have allowed users to upload attachments along with the page data. But it's unfortunate we have to do two calls to complete a page.
