There is information available in a monitoring tool called Solarwinds, that is needed to be extracted and sincronised on-line in order to have information up to date in Confluence.
We are thinking to use Confluence in order to gather all network documentation as switches information, IP, switch name, switch ports, mac address, V-LAN, etc. This infor is available in a monitoring tool, however we would like to know if it would be feasible to connect Confluence with the monitoring tool in order to feed Confluence with the latest data available.
At a basic level, if you're simply looking to embed a SolarWinds page into Confluence, you could use an iFrame on a Confluence page (there's a Marketplace plugin for that if you have Confluence Server). You might do this if you had some other details about specific devices on a Confluence page and wanted to show an up-to-date view into Solarwinds. The downside of this is that users would need to be authenticated with Solarwinds (or have an account to authenticate in the iFrame) to see the information.
If you're looking to natively display the information in Confluence, you'll first need to export it from Solarwinds. It looks like there are some CSV and/or Excel export options. Not being personally familiar with the Solarwinds interface, I can't provide exact advice on how to get the info you need exported. Once that hurdle is cleared however, you have a couple options!
Hope this provides you a direction to start investigating!
