Why I can not update a specific confluence page content by rest api?

"id" : "xxxxxxx",
"type" : "page",
"title" : "xxxxxxxxx",
"value" : "<p><table><tr><th>head1</th><th>head2</th></tr><tr><td>value1</td><td>value2</td></tr><tr><td>value3</td><td>value4</td></tr></table></p>",
"representation" : "storage"
"version" : {
"number" : 2


I use json data like above(id and title have been insert  ),and also use "PUT" method.

The title of that page can be modified but the value is still unchanging.

Why does this happen?

Is the value unchanging in confluence page when i use rest api to call it?

Thanks for answering me!!!!

Your JSON data looks to be in a good format. Since you are reporting the page title is being update but not the body then it seems like there may be an issue with the entry URI. 

What is the URI you are using to update content of an existing page? An example of this would be:


Along with this, what is the response code you are getting from the API call?

It should be 200, 400, or 404.

Something else to keep in mind, your version must increment up from the previous update each time the call is made. The page version is dictated from Confluence and cannot be manually modified from what Confluence is reporting.

Further information on the Update Content calls can be found in the Confluence REST API Documentation (Content update)

We look forward to your response to get this issue resolved!
