Import html folder to Confluence


I generated sql table documentation using Red Gate SQL DOC and i save documentation as HTML.

How can i import this documentation in HTML to Confluence? Whether there are any plugin to importing HTML?

You know any idea, how can i resolve this problem?

PS: I can't save my documentation as WORD or PDF in SQL DOC, because description of my tables is generating as column name, but this is not true

I'm not sure if you can automatically import (without programming) html, but you can create content from html (HTML for Confluence by @Bob Swift [Bob Swift Atlassian Add-ons]) or you can include html (HTML Include and replace macro by @Andy Brook [The Plugin People]).


HTMLIR would only work if the files you have generated were exposed on a webserver, any relative urls etc to images would get rewritten to point to the server, so no copying needed.

Thanks for the commitment and willingness to help, but unfortunately it also does not solve my problem

I am also experiencing a problem launching htm documentation in Confluence.  Single static html pages are not formatted correctly but otherwise will launch from Confluence.  However, documentation that has several pages and and index.html as well as associated css will not launch.  Confluence doesn't seem to have a way for the attached index.html to see the other attached pages.  I have tried Bob Swift but that only supports single web pages too; not complex multi-page htm documentation as far as I can tell.

I don't know how can i run this project

If you download the project, you can see the following in the README file Install Python 2.6: Grab python-2.6.msi from 3rd party and install. Install lxml: Grab lxml-2.3.win32-py2.6.exe from 3rdParty and install it. Install libxml2: Grab libxml2-python-2.7.7.win32-py2.6.exe from 3rdParty and install. Install setuptools: Download run Install python-ntlm from 3rdParty: gzip -d python-ntlm.tar.gz tar xvf python-ntlm.tar cd python-ntlm sudo python install Install PyDAV from 3rdParty: gzip -d pydavclient-0.2.tar.gz tar xvf pydavclient-0.2.tar cd pydavclient-0.2 sudo python install How to use H2C: $ ./ Usage: [action] [] [login] [password] [confluence-space] [action specific options...] Where [action] can be one of the following: * import - import content to confluence specify additional parameters: [confluence-space] [local-source] [working-directory] * export - export content from webdav/sharepoint specify additional parameters: [confluence-space] [remote-path] [exported-data] Example: ./ import user test spacename /source /converted Example: ./ export user test spacename /remote/directory

I saw this plugin, but the contents are placed pictures and I am afraid that the pictures would have to be added manually.
