    Sexy SQL editor

    Format your results

    As Wysiwyg as SQL can be

    We'll get you started writing SQL thanks to syntax coloring, contextual help and SQL wizards. Buff your query, then ship the macro on several pages.

    Display numbers as a currency amount "$ 123,00". Resize columns. Use icons, totals. Timeouts. Cache. It's a full-featured solution.

    Alright, SQL isn't easy to master, but we've made our best to integrate it beautifully in Confluence.

    This is a great plugin and we really appreciate that Adrien made it free. The only thing that we really miss is the ability to query multiple databases across multiple spaces. The current implementation that requires you to connect each space to a single database doesn't work for us. We need a list of databases that can be used in any page. UPDATE: Usually I do not get 4/4 stars on my reviews but this vendor proved to be able to provide very good and quick response and I would give it 5/4 stars if it would be possible.

    This is one of the most powerful free plugins on the Marketplace! I usually avoid free plugins unless they are written by solid proven plugin vendors. Adrien may be new to plugins but having worked at Atlassian he knows the products and actually provides the best support of any plugin vendor I've encountered...even on the free version!!!

    Version 2.11.4 Confluence Server 5.9.1 - 5.10.8 Released 2015-12-02


    Compatibility with 5.10, Java 8 and JDBC 4.2


    PLAYSQL-192 - Fix compatibility for Confluence 5.9.1 (compatibility with 5.10 too).

    No feature change in this bugfix version.

    Dear customers,

    It has become difficult to provide comptability over both Java 7 and 8, and over several Confluence versions.

    In this particular version, we had to drop compatibility with older versions of Confluence. Most customers who keep the add-on up-to-date also upgrade their Confluence instance from time to time, so we hope this will be minor inconvenience.

    Going forward, we desire to keep the old policy: We maximize the backwards-compatibility when possible. It is only in this version that we've met particular difficulties. Thank you.
