Inject database output into Confluence via scripting?

We have a series of data points that I would like to keep up to date in a Confluence page that could be stored in a MySQL database.   Is there a way I can code something via a script or otherwise that would populate a Confluence page with a formatted table containing this data, that wouldn't be manual copy and paste design?   What about scripting the creation of a page, etc.

 

 

Thanks.

Hi Forrest,

It sounds like you want to have a table on a Confluence page that displays data from a MySQL database.

You could use Bob Swift's SQL for Confluence to accomplish this. Have a look at that plugin and let us know if you have any questions about it.

Kind Regards,

This is great, thank you for the pointer.  I also found another that handles this differently, but this looks more complete.  I will check it out.

Great! Just let us know if you're able to resolve your issue from this or if you have any questions about it.

Kind Regards,
Shannon
