Using SQL File with Markup - 9.x

Scenario

Estimated Time: 10 min

In this scenario, let's insert the SQL File macro on a Confluence page by inserting Markup from the menu. Our SQL File macro references a file containing SQL located within the /script (default) directory of your Confluence server.

Background

Our scenario uses a data source profile, BookWarehouse, to query a database table, BOOKS. The table contains the following columns and rows:

SQL > select * from books;
+----+----------------------------+---------------------+-------+
| id | title                      | author              | price |
+----+----------------------------+---------------------+-------+
|  1 | The Grapes of Wrath        | John Steinbeck      | 12.99 |
|  2 | Nineteen Eighty-Four       | George Orwell       |  8.99 |
|  3 | The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle | Haruki Murakami     |  7.99 |
|  4 | Don Quixote                | Miguel De Cervantes | 29.99 |
|  5 | Pilgrims Progress          | John Bunyan         | 17.99 |
|  6 | Robinson Crusoe            | Daniel Defoe        | 29.05 |
|  7 | Gullivers Travels          | Jonathan Swift      | 15.98 |
|  8 | Tom Jones                  | Henry Fielding      | 13.59 |
|  9 | Clarissa                   | Samuel Richardson   | 13.59 |
| 10 | Tristram Shandy            | Laurence Sterne     |  7.59 |
+----+----------------------------+---------------------+-------+

Our query is stored within a file called books.sql and along with our Confluence administrator to place it within the /script (default) directory on our Confluence server. Our query looks like:

SELECT title as "Title", author as "Author", price as "Retail Price" FROM books WHERE price < 30 ORDER BY title;
