Automatically import pages to Confluence

Hi

I know Confluence can import text files from a dir. and create pages of them. This can be done from the Confluence admin pages.

Is there a way to make Confluence do this automatically or do I have to implement a PlugIn for this?

I have a situation where I produce some log files every day and I want to make them visible for the customer in Confluence without any manual work.

Cheers

Awesome. I love it when I see Confluence CLI as an answer!

Ok, then I will investigate it further :-) Thanks

No, I am not running OnDemand and WebDAV seems to be just a directory share for the OnDemand version. But thanks for the answer.

WebDAV can be configured for Download versions as well (we did)

to let some users edit/add spacecontent from outside the webbrowser

Two of the criterias for using WebDAV are not running Confluence over https and use port 80. I fail on both :-(

That was the one I was reading. It says the following:

To map a Confluence WebDAV client network drive, your Confluence instance must be configured so that all of the following criteria is met:

  • Uses HTTP (not HTTPS)
  • Listens on port 80 (not 8080, which is the default port value used by the popular application server Apache Tomcat that runs many Confluence EAR / WAR installations, or 8090, the default for Confluence distributions)
  • Has no context root
  • There is an issue (WBDV-208) that can prevent Network Drives from being mapped. Please use the Network Folders steps below as a workaround.

The reason for these restrictions results from limitations in Microsoft's Mini-Redirector component. For more information, please refer to Microsoft's server discovery issue.

I'm using https and port 8009. Or am I misunderstanding something here?

that shouldn't really matter.

have a look at this KB:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Configuring+a+WebDAV+client+for+Confluence

the https from the first url is related to the server config atlassian uses...

you will be able to connect on non SSL hosts too

i won't say that you may be misunderstanding sth...

afaik webdav is included in confluence..(what version are you using?)

just give it a shot...and try to connect. there are examples for all platforms i.e. windows, max os x and linux

You are right. It works! I think this can be used. I will try this before the CLI-solution suggested. This is free ;-)
