Export a Confluence page to PDF from shell

Hello, I am trying to export a confluence page to a pdf in some build automation (Jenkins).

I have managed to get the pageId of the page I want to export.

When I tried to use the URL in the following fashion

wget {url copied from the tools -> export pdf } -o blah.pdf

I get the following error

$ wget https://confluence.blah.com:8443/spaces/flyingpdf/pdfpageexport.action?pageId=13959783

--2014-01-02 15:20:09-- https://confluence.blah.com:8443/spaces/flyingpdf/pdfpageexport.action?pageId=13959783

Resolving confluence.blah.com(confluence.blah.com)...

Connecting to confluence.sisa.samsung.com(confluence.blah.com)||:8443... connected.

ERROR: The certificate of ‘confluence.blah.com’ is not trusted.

ERROR: The certificate of ‘confluence.blah.com’ hasn't got a known issuer.

Any suggestions on how I can go about exporting a pageId from confluence to PDF?.
THank you,

Add --no-check-certificate to wget command line and it should work mostly.

If you want to perform actions on your Confluence instance through cli, I would advice you to have a look at the Atlassian Command Line Interface. Several examples of command you can use, among which pdf page exports, can be found here

Has anyone ever got this working? How did you handle authentication?

Did you ever get this to work along with authentication?
