Introduction

conflcmd is a simple command-line tool that allows one to manage various Confluence content from the command line. conflcmd uses the REST API (Confluence 6.x).

Configuration

All configuration files are under ~/.conflcmd. The files are:

  • main.conf - main configuration settings; not used at the moment.
  • creds.conf - credentials; should be readable only by the user.

Ideally, the ~/.conflcmd directory should be user-readable only.

creds.conf

The creds.conf file is meant to hold credentials information that should be kept "secure".

No Format
[<sectionname>]
url = <server url>
username = <username>
password = <password>

Note: At the moment, the password is kept in clear text. So, make sure to keep that file user-readable only.

Examples

Security

If access is restricted, use the -u to pass username and either -P, or better,  -p . This is usually required to create, delete, and update.

With -P, a password will be asked for interactively. With -p, the password will be looked up in the configuration files.

For the creds.conf file:

No Format
[localhost]
url = https://localhost/confluence
username = john
password = 1234

Notes:

  • The url must match the serverurl used in the call to conflcmd.
  • The username must match the username used in the call to conflcmd.

Creating and Updating

Create a page in space "TEST":

No Format
conflcmd -u john -P https://localhost/confluence create-page TEST "" "Test2" test.html

Notes:

  • -u is used to specify the account to use.
  • -P tells conflcmd to ask for the password (safer than putting it on the command line).
  • Set parentpagename to "" to create a top-level page (i.e., not a child page).
  • The content is taken from the test.html file.

No Format
conflcmd -u john -P https://localhost/confluence create-page TEST "Test2" "Test3" test.html

conflcmd -u john -P https://localhost/confluence update-page TEST Hello hello.html ""

Notes:

  • The content is taken from the hello.html file.
  • The change comment is empty "".

Update page using credentials in configuration file:

No Format
conflcmd -u john -p https://localhost/confluence update-page TEST Hello - ""

Notes:

  • The password is provided via the creds.conf file.
  • The server url (https://localhost/confluence) must match a definition (url setting) in the creds.conf file.
