Using Bob Swift CLI to create new users

Hello Community,

 

I am trying to use Bob Swift CLI to create users in my confluence. 

I installed the plugin on my confluence and the client on my PC (windows 10). However, there seems to be an issue with my confluence: 

I tried to run the following command:

 

acli jiracloud --action getProjectList --server https://<<my Confluence>>.atlassian.net

 

and I get the following response:


Client error: Unable to contact Jira at url https://<<my Confluence>>.atlassian.net. Response code: 404.

 

Am I missing something? It seems like I cant run any commands (like creating new users) as long as the general connection to my confluence is not working.

Thank you for your answers.

Hi @Benjamin Meier , 

I'm from Appfire Support team and I will assist you with the Bob Swift Atlassian Apps - Confluence Command Line Interface (CLI) issue,

I would like to inform you that the Cloud requires an Atlassian API token and you can generate the API token by the below link:

https://id.atlassian.com/manage/api-tokens

Once the API token is generated, please use that has the password and you should be able to connect to the Cloud instance to perform the CLI actions.


Kirans-MacBook-Pro:ACLI kiranpanduga$ cat acli.properties
# Below are the connections configured by the ACLI installer:
jiraCredentials = -u kiran@appfire.com -t QIp2hc5KwiIwevZX669040Il3146
confluence=jiracloud -s https://example.atlassian.net/ ${jiraCredentials}


After successfully adding, you can execute the below CLI action to get the Space List in Confluence


--action getSpaceList

I hope the information is helpful.

I would like to inform you that, we had opened a request for the same in our support portal and request you to login and access this request and all further communication will be through our support portal.

Thanks,
Kiran.

Hello Kiran,

 

thanks a lot for your answer. Unfortunately I do not have permission to view the request you linked. 

Regarding your answer:

I already used the API token of my confluence when I installed the client.

Unfortunately, when I run the ACLI acli.properties command the following message returns: 

Configuration or client acli.properties not found. Valid clients are: agile, agilecloud, bamboo, bitbucket, bitbucketcloud, cli, confluence, confluencecloud, csv, jira, jiracloud, servicedesk, servicedeskcloud, slack, structure, tempo, tempocloud, trello, upm, upmcloud. Configuration file is: 'C:\Users\Benny\ACLI\acli.properties'.

My acli.properties file contains the following:

 

# Below are the connections configured by the ACLI installer:
jiraCredentials = -u benjamin.meier@<<domain>>.de -t <<my Token>>
default=jiracloud -s https://<<my Confluence>>.atlassian.net/ ${jiraCredentials}

Hi @Benjamin Meier , 

Thank you for the information. Regarding the accessing the Support portal, please find the screenshot as a reference. Click on the profile and setting in the left sidebar and select Profile. You will see the name. Please provide the name so that we will add it to our Support portal as the reporter and you can have further updates on that Support request.

With respect to CLI issue, 

Please execute the below CLI action ans share us the output in the support request.

./acli jiracloud --action getSpaceList --debug

Thanks,

Kiran.

Hello Kiran,

 

thank you very much for your continued help, I highly appreciate it. 

The name I can see when I open my confluence profile is "Benjamin Meier". I hope this is the value you needed.

It appears you have not signed up into our portal. Please sign up(here) and let me know, then I will be able to add you as reported to the issue.

 

Meanwhile, please execute these actions and share the debug logs

acli jiracloud --action getProjectList --debug

Replace your Cloud instance, Username and Token in the above command and execute.

Attempt unsuccessful for the upmcloud client.
Parameter error: Unknown flag 'username'. Action was getProjectList for the jiracloud client. Other related clients were also attempted without success.

 

I was not sure what username you meant. I tried my login-Email, my name and also the ID shown in the url when managing my profile. All of them returned the same output.

Hi @Benjamin Meier , 

I still cannot view your name in our portal. Can you share me your email address? I will send you an meeting invite for now to address the CLI issue and portal access issue. 

Thanks,

Kiran.
