Best way to backup confiform data?

Evan Hiatt August 21, 2023

Do you have suggestions for how to backup confiform data?

When someone enters a new entry, modifies an entry, or just on a periodic basis, is there a way to back up the data that a confiform contains? 

Currently I know that the Confluence Table Filter macro has the option to export as a CSV. I think this is great! I wish I could have that automatically occur.

I know there is an IFTTT rule to copy confiform data to a database, but I do not have admin privileges and cannot connect a database to confluence.

Hi @Evan Hiatt 

You can set up some CRON scheduler to run the https://wiki.vertuna.com/display/CONFIFORMS/ConfiForms+Server+REST+API+version+1#ConfiFormsServerRESTAPIversion1-ExportRAWdataset to export and save the RAW dataset form your ConfiForms form

Also, it's possible to export CSV/excel and XML/JSON if necessary

This is a great suggestion. Now I just need to learn to code a CRON and a get request! Thanks
