Accessing internal Confluence Tables / Data through Active Objects Entities

I have successfully set up a confluence server plugin exposing a custom AO-Entity through a servlet.

I basically want to access the "internal" confluence tables with AO-Entities, so i can build for example a many-to-one relationship between the logged in users and let's say a custom Note-Entity:

public interface Note extends Entity
    public User getUser() // is there a User-Entity class that directly relates to the internal confluence user-table (cwd_user)?  


I did a search and found those threads but they presented not a full answer (at least to me)



  • Are there "pre-defined" entities to access the confluence tables?
  • If not, what is the approach to connect custom entities with the internal?

You don't.  Active Object tables are there to be defined by your apps for use by your apps, so you can code for access to them in your app.

But the internal tables, such as cwd_user should be accessed via the internal Confluence API.  There's no AO duplication of them, you shouldn't need anything like that.

I see. Thank you very much.
