Problem

Attempting to export a page/space fails with the error message "Your request could not be processed because a required security token was not present in the request".

Cause

The following REST call fails in the browser console due to compressed HTTP requests:

GET http://HOST/ContextPath/includes/js/ajax.js 
Uncaught ReferenceError: getXmlHttp is not defined

Workaround

  1. Go to Confluence Administration > General Configuration
  2. Click the "Edit" button 
  3. Uncheck the "Compress HTTP Responses"
  4. Click Save button
