Hello, community. I'm just wondering what the proper way for that would be... The goal is to display a selection form on a confluence page to filter and display entries of a separate custom database table. I want to create a new table in the confluence database like
Harry 30 meat
John 25 vegetables
Jennifer 27 meat
And then I want to create a selection form on the confluence page where I could filter the table for a 25 years old person who likes vegetables :-) And show the results.
Another idea for that end would be to create a page to store that information and then use something like the Confluence SQL plugin from Bob swift (which is a third party plugin).
I would avoid creating tables in Confluence database, since that kind of customization could cause some problems during upgrade or data restoration procedures.
Also this page might help you if you decide to play around Confluence database.
I'd just like to amplify David's point. The Confluence SQL macro allow you to query and display data from an external database. Your would add a new datasource to your Confluence instnace in the following manner.
You wouldn't create a paget ostore that information, but an entirely new database. You could then use the SQL macro on a page of your chosing to display your desired information. To my knowledge you can't use a page in confluene as a datasource. I think David is trying to suggest decoupling the Confluence database and the new datasource to avoid problems during upgrade.
