What's the best way to embed URL content from Jenkins API in Confluence?

We wish to include some information from our Jenkins build pages, probably via the XML API, in Confluence pages.

We thought that using the HTML Include plugin would work, but instead get the error:

HTML inclusion denied because the page at http://192.168.26.41:9090/job/ourproject/lastCompletedBuild/testReport/api/xml?xpath=/*/passCount/text() is not an HTML page.

Which makes sense as it is just a text response, in this case a number indicating the number of tests that have passed for our build.

However, I can't see any other way to retrieve the contents of a URL and embed them within the page. I tried using an iframe, using the HTML plugin, and this works, but seems to default to being a very large box, which is no good as we want to include many values from Jenkins in a table.

I'm sure I must be missing something and there is a better way to do this...please help point us in the right direction :)

The xslt macro of confluence claims to do this. So instead of applying the xpath on the Jenkins URL, you could try directly getting the xml and then applying the style sheet.
