Confluence from rest api

Uising the code below I try to access an article in confluence, but I get 403 ... What am I doing wrong ?

 

                using (var client = new WebClient())
                {
                    client.Headers.Add("X-Atlassian-Token", "no-check");
                    client.Headers.Add("Accept", "application/json");
 
                    var plainTextBytes = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("uid:pwd");
                    string val = System.Convert.ToBase64String(plainTextBytes);
                    client.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Basic " + val);                   

string url = "https://xxx.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/content/747700280";
                    string content = client.DownloadString(url);
                }

 

Regards

Hi @Rolf Henning Hjemdahl 

403 response code means, the request is not sending the correct authentication header.

> client.Headers.Add("X-Atlassian-Token", "no-check");

looks incorrect to me.

This page has more details on sending the correct authentication header: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/confluence/basic-auth-for-rest-apis/

Tried the code below, but still I get 403 ...

 

using (var client = new WebClient())
                {
                    client.Headers.Add("Accept", "application/json");
 
                    var plainTextBytes = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("uid:pwd");
                    string val = System.Convert.ToBase64String(plainTextBytes);
                    client.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Basic " + val);                   

string url = "https://xxx.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/content/747700280";
                    string content = client.DownloadString(url);
                }

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
