Using the SQL macro with Markup - 9.x

Scenario

Estimated Time: 8 min

In this scenario, let's insert the SQL macro on a Confluence page by inserting Markup from the menu. The SQL macro uses the SQL statement loaded into the body of the macro.

Background

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

SQL > select * from publishers;
+----+------+-------------------+-----------------+---------+
| id | rank | parent_company    | company_name    | revenue |
+----+------+-------------------+-----------------+---------+
| 10 | 1    | Pearson           | Pearson         | 5000.00 |
| 11 | 2    | Reed              | RELXGroup       | 4900.00 |
| 12 | 3    | WoodbridgeCompany | ThompsonReuters | 4700.00 |
| 13 | 4    | BertelsmannAG-NV  | Bertelsmann     | 4500.00 |
| 14 | 5    | WoltersKluwer     | WoltersKluwer   | 4100.00 |
+----+------+-------------------+-----------------+---------+
