Anyone have an example of using CLI to attach a csv file and display it in confluence?

If I have a file "file1.csv" stored on a server say "file-server1" and I wanted to display the file in confluence how would I go about setting up CLI to do it? I add the macro to a test page but don't know what to put in the body of it

Normally, you would use the CLI to take the contents of the file and populate a page with the data. For example:

--action storePage --space myspace --title file1 --file file1.csv --content "{noformat}" --content2 "{noformat}"

If you have the Table Plugin for Confluence, then you can replace the noformat macro with the csv macro.

Another approach is to just use the csv macro directly and access a file located in the script directory in the home directory of the Confluence server. See CSV Macro .

I will give this a try and get back to you. Thanks for the speedy reply.

I am now getting a "Error rendering macro 'cli' : Security restricted macro with parameter 'product' and parameter value 'confluence' is not allowed on this page. A page edit restriction is required that matches the macro authorization list." Error. WHat should change in the \\conflluence-server\ConfluenceData\ file to allow the macro to run?

or if it could read the data from the csv then display it on the current confluence page.

cli is a macro security controlled macro and so needs an entry in your macro-security properties - something like:


For your other question, see the answer regarding the use of the csv macro.
