How can I automatically update a Confluence page using Shell script or PYTHON

Hi @Madhu 

I'm using python with the confluence REST API. And I'm using the requests package for any request.

The following script just creates a new page. With this little script, you should be able to create a script, which updates some content with this PUT request

newPageName = 'Atlassian Community'
url = 'URL'

user = 'user'
password = 'pw'


headers = {
'X-Atlassian-Token': 'no-check',
'Content-Type': 'application/json'
auth=(user, password)

spacekey = 'key'
parentId = parentId

mypage = {"type":"page","title":""+newPageName+"","ancestors":[{"id":parentId}],"space":{"key":""+spacekey+""},"body":{"storage":{"value":"VALUE IN STORAGE FORMAT","representation":"storage"}}}
post ='/rest/api/content/', data=json.dumps(mypage), auth=auth, headers=headers, verify=False)

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Regards, Dominic

Will this new page added on parent page or in new location?

Could you please help.

This is the error which I am getting.

The new page will be added at the location, where you defined with "spacekey" and "parentID". 

The parentId is the ID from the parent page, therefore, the created page is a child of that parent page. 


I don't know how to solve the problem correctly with the SSL, but you can suppress this warning with: 


Thanks alot for your help. I am new to python, thats why I am asking you like this.
