Is it possible to automatically refresh content in Confluence?

We are using Confluence 3.0 to host our project Wiki. One page shows data about the deployed servers in our project: what version of our web app each server runs, which DB it connects to, when it was last updated etc. Since updating this page by hand is easy to forget or mess up after server configuration changes, we thought it would be nice to have a way to automatically keep it in sync with reality.

To be more precise, we would like to parse specific bits of data from config files on various servers, and transfer them to Confluence to update specific cells in a table on this page.

Is this possible e.g. via the Reporting Plugin (or by whatever other means)?

Did you check the confluence-cli?

I was using it to create pages from my machine via command line interface.

I think you can use that in conjunction with some shell scripts (if you're using unix/linux)

Hope this helps.
