Confluence: connect to external SQL database and display results as dashboard or in tabular format

hi Team,

How can i connect to an external SQL database [testrail ] and display the query results  in confluence as a dashboard or in Tabular format. 

here i do not want to use any add-on like (SQL Plugin for ConfluencePlay SQL Base, and PocketQuery). 


is there a code snippet /steps that i can refer to

Your options are:

  • Use an existing add-on
  • Write your own new add-on

Confluence is basically a documentation platform that is extensible with add-ons.

When it doesn't do what you need, you can bend it you your needs with either time and knowledge (build your own add-on), or money (use someone elses add-on).

Any of the add-ons you suggested above could help.

thanks for your reply .

in forums, its says php is not supported 

can you guide me on the scripting language /language name that supports so that i can achieve this

Assuming you're using Confluence Server, you'll need Java skills :)

Hi David can you explain how using Java can we do the same.. @David Simpson
