@noor basha  I have already sent you a reply on your previous question.

Here is recap of that,

Displaying attachment on confluence page is another part of story and you will need to fire separate APIs for this.

You need to put something like this in your page body using API,

  <ri:attachment ri:filename="atlassian_logo.gif" />

Here is an working API example, in first API I'm adding image `sample.png` as attachment and later in second API call I'm displaying that in page using Confluence Structure format in body.


curl -D- -u '<USERNAME>:<PASSWORD>' \
-H 'X-Atlassian-Token: nocheck' \
-F 'file=@"./sample.png"' \

curl --request PUT \
--url '<CONFLUNCE_BASE_URL>/rest/api/content/<PAGE_ID>' \
--user '<USERNAME>:<PASSWORD>' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--data '{
"title":"Sample Page",
"value":"<p>Adding image to page</p><ac:image><ri:attachment ri:filename=\"sample.png\" /></ac:image>",

Hi noorbasha - can you explain what you mean by using "storage format"? I am having same problems and can't make the code above work.
