Is it possible to create a template page daily in a particular space as scheduled job?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Scheduled Jobs

I'm wondering if there is a way to use Scheduled Jobs to automatically create a daily-standup notes page for folks to fill in. If not, is there an alternative to buying a Command Line Interface plugin and creating a cron to do the job?

If you want to save the license fee of the CLI add-on, you could very easily implement this:

  1. Use a single call to the REST API to create a page (see the doc page):

    curl -u admin:admin -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d'{"type":"page","title":"new page","space":{"key":"TST"},"body":{"storage":{"value":"<p>This is a new page</p>","representation":"storage"}}}' http://localhost:8080/confluence/rest/api/content/ | python -mjson.tool
  2. When it is running stable, schedule this via crontab or the native scheduler of your OS.

Should be dead simple.

 

Thank you - this sounds very hopeful! Do you know of a way to reference the current date in the page title? So that it wouldn't overwrite the previous one each time it is created? Also do you think there would be a way to create a new page with content from an existing template using this method?

Hi Morgan,

You can develop your own confluence plugin that implements a job module (https://developer.atlassian.com/confdev/confluence-plugin-guide/confluence-plugin-module-types/job-module).

At this time there's no plugin that provides this feature.

Regards,

Fabio
