getting json using example api confluence

Hi im trying to grab the json from the api call using a rest curl. here's my command

curl -D- -u admin:admin -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/configuration

I got this from here 

https://developer.atlassian.com/confdev/confluence-server-rest-api/confluence-rest-api-examples

and here's my output (replacing actual info with "hiding")

HTTP/1.1 200

Now when I use a |python -mjson.tool  afterwards, it tells me no JSON object could be decoded. Its frustrating that the example isn’t working with the code, is there some way to grab the only the JSON at the end? Thanks for any help

Dont use that "-D-" in you curl request. That will show you the header information which cant be decoded in json.
