Here is an example of the function for a simple form we use to enter weekly highlights:

 

CREATEFUNCTION [dbo].[ConfiGetWeeklyHighlightReport] ()
RETURNS 
@tbl TABLE (
	RecordGuid			NVARCHAR(32)	NULL,
	RecordId			INT				NULL,
	Date				DATE			NULL,
	Status				NVARCHAR(100)	NULL,
	Reporter			NVARCHAR(100)	NULL,
	Description			NVARCHAR(MAX)	NULL,
	OwnedBy				NVARCHAR(32)	NULL,
	CreatedBy			NVARCHAR(32)	NULL,
	CreatedTs			DATETIME		NULL,
	IsDeleted			BIT				NULL
)
AS
BEGIN
	DECLARE @OffsetSecond INT = DATEPART(TZOFFSET, SYSDATETIMEOFFSET()) * 60;
	DECLARE @XmlData XML = (
		SELECT XmlData = CAST(text_val AS XML)
		FROM ConfluenceStore.dbo.OS_PROPERTYENTRY
		WHERE entity_key = 'confiform_contentitassistWeeklyReport'
			AND entity_id = 39485704 -- page id
	);
	
	WITH Items AS (
		SELECT 
			RecordGuid			= item.value('(id/text())[1]', 'NVARCHAR(32)'),
			RecordId			= item.value('(recordId/text())[1]', 'INT'),
			Date				= item.value('(fields//date/text())[1]', 'NVARCHAR(32)'),
			Status				= item.value('(fields//status/text())[1]', 'NVARCHAR(100)'),
			Reporter			= item.value('(fields//reporter/text())[1]', 'NVARCHAR(100)'),
			Description			= item.value('(fields//description/text())[1]', 'NVARCHAR(MAX)'),
			OwnedBy				= item.value('(ownedBy/text())[1]', 'NVARCHAR(32)'),
			CreatedBy			= item.value('(createdBy/text())[1]', 'NVARCHAR(32)'),
			CreatedTs			= item.value('(created/text())[1]', 'NVARCHAR(32)'),
			IsDeleted			= item.value('(deleted/text())[1]', 'BIT')
		FROM @XmlData.nodes('/list/entry') AS Requests(item)
	)
	INSERT INTO @tbl
	SELECT
			RecordGuid,
			RecordId,
			Date = DATEADD(SECOND, (CONVERT(BIGINT, Date) / 1000) + @OffsetSecond, '1970-01-01'),
			Status = CASE Status
				WHEN 'success' THEN 'REPORTED' 
				ELSE Status
			END,
			Reporter,
			Description,
			OwnedBy,
			CreatedBy,
			CreatedTs = DATEADD(SECOND, (CONVERT(BIGINT, CreatedTs) / 1000) + @OffsetSecond, '1970-01-01'),
			IsDeleted
	FROM Items
	;
	RETURN 
END

Ohh, you better dont "integrate" on the database level.

We believe in teh same approach as Atlassian advices - use APIs and SDK, but never access your database directly.

We do have APIs for ConfiForms as well, as strongly advice to use APIs for incoming integrations and ConfiForms IFTTT macros for outgoing integrations
