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 = requests.post(url+'/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.

InsecureRequestWarning: Unverified HTTPS request is being made. Adding certificate verification is strongly advised. See: https://urllib3.readthedocs.io/en/latest/advanced-usage.html#ssl-warnings
warnings.warn(

 

 

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: 

urllib3.disable_warnings(urllib3.exceptions.InsecureRequestWarning)

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

urllib3.disable_warnings(urllib3.exceptions.InsecureRequestWarning)
