Are there any macros that allow you to put a link to a file in SVN from a wiki page that will show the contents of that file as part of the wiki page when you save it?

What kind of file is it? Also, is there a URL accessible to the file in the SVN repo?

It's a text file (BDD test results, actually). Yes, there's a URL.  The idea is for developers to generate the file during each build and by using a link to the generated file from documentation in confluence, the content will always be up to date.

Here is a user macro I created a while ago that can do this. It would require allowing CORS on your SVN server.

## Developed by: Davin Studer
## Date created: 05/07/2014
## @param URL:title=Text File URL|type=string|required=true|desc=
#set( $id=$action.dateFormatter.calendar.timeInMillis )
#set( $d = "$" )
<div id="text$id">
    <ac:structured-macro ac:name="noformat">
		<ac:parameter ac:name="nopanel">true</ac:parameter>
		<ac:plain-text-body><![CDATA[ ]]></ac:plain-text-body>
	</ac:structured-macro>
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.toInit(function(){
    AJS.${d}.get("${paramURL}", function( data ) {
        AJS.$('#text${id} pre').text(data);
    });
});
</script>

Thanks, Davin!  I'm checking with the administrators here and I'll let you know if it works out.

Cheers,

Marty

Most of us don’t need much convincing that stakeholder management is important. It just makes sense that keeping everyone in-the-know on projects and assigning clearly defined roles is key to having ...
