Can you create a blog post in Confluence from an email or any other external tool?

I would like to add a blog or page for our CoreMetrics team to post their daily KPIs.

How can I automatically create a post with an email that is sent out to our group? Is this even possible?

Hi,

Not entirely sure what it is you want to do, but if the email is a prompt for the team to create their daily KPI post you could just use the following link in the email:

http://<YOUR CONFLUENCE BASE URL>/pages/createblogpost.action?spaceKey=<YOUR SPACE KEY>

e.g.

http://mycompany.atlassian.net/pages/createblogpost.action?spaceKey=KPI

When someone clicked the link a blank blog post would be created where they could enter their KPI details.

Or do you want people to fill in a form or send an email with the KPI details to Confluence?

It's actually the ability for those team members to update their KPI Blog in Confluence with the daily KPI report via email. Is this possible? Or do they need to go directly into Confluence?

Ah ok. There are a few plugins that provide that functionality:

https://plugins.atlassian.com/13214

https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugins/biz.artemissoftware.plugins.confluence.send-email-to-page

but are you using OnDemand rather than the download version of Confluence? Unfortunately plugins cannot be installed with OnDemand so the above would only be applicable if you were using the download version.

Another alternative would be to script something and use the remote API (https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CONFDEV/Confluence+Remote+API+Reference) to post content to Confluence. Remote APIs are available with OnDemand.

Hope that's of some help?

Andrew.
