So, now I (kinda) know how to take .csv or SQL data into a report format (http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DISC/Confluence+Reporting+HOWTO), I now have another question:
A user accesses a pre-defined template in a space and fills the variable fields with his data. This will automatically create a page in that space. That page data, using the variables in the template as fields, populates an external SQL DB.
Is there any way of automatically taking those templated variables and adding them to an external DB repository (say in SQL)?
I am looking for a way of getting my users to enter data about 'People', 'Places' and 'Events' using conflucence as the entry portal, but want to allow all users to then cleverly manipulate, search and report on that information from a SQL DB back into Confluence.
Bob, thanks for this - pure gold.
Looks like what we'll do is:
a. work out how to importa/call foreign classes in Confluence
b. figure out how to map the input fields into the SQL query
c. setup the datasource
d. work out how to differentiate between an insertion and an update.
