@Dmitriy.Bochkanovare you using /wiki in download url?



with header Authorization Basic <my_token>

Thank a lot. You solve it.
But is it error in "download" link?


Best regards, Dmitriy

@Dmitriy.BochkanovActually on Confluence Cloud, the base url contains context path of /wiki so it is not exactly an error, but Atlassian have not mentioned it clearly anywhere.

If this response helped you, you can accept and like the answer so that we can help other.
