Is there a way to format the text of the SQL results? Currently, I can only get it to return in the default paragraph formatting in confluence. I really need the results to be formatted in a larger font so the results can be read on a TV monitor from a distance.

You can use various Confluence techniques for this like div and style from Content Formatting Macros (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.adaptavist.confluence.contentFormattingMacros).

I tried to install the trial version on Confluence 5.1.5. Simply couldn't enable it. Generated multiple trial licence keys, uninstalled, reinstalled, nothing helped. Error: "This add-on could not be loaded. It has one or more errors which prevent it from being enabled." I have many people in my company who are interested in this plugin, but nobody's going to pay for it until they can see what it can do for them.

Make sure you are using a recent version of UPM and it is installing a compatible version of the plugin. Your Confluence logs may contain more information on the failure. If still not working, open a support issue with Atlassian - they are primarily responsible for UPM installation and licensing issues. If they can't resolve it promptly, let us know by opening a support issue with us at https://bobswift.atlassian.net/browse/SQL.

This is a great plugin and we use it quite a lot for reporting purposes and coupled with the run plugin this plugin gets even better.

Awesome product, helps us to be so much more productive. Was using an access database to display all of our reports before this. Thanks Bob~!

We use the SQL plugin extensively within Atlassian -- it's the lifeblood for our corporate reporting, which is all done within Confluence. The SQL plugin brings realtime data into a normally-static Confluence page, which means people can search for, and access, data without having to leave Confluence. It's great being able to put descriptive information on the same page as "live" data -- it lets us explain terminology and provide analysis side-by-side with the data. For examples of how we use it, see: http://bit.ly/howto-report

Confluence becomes a reporting and business intelligence tool that is integrated with your other collaborative data.

  • Supports JDBC complaint databases, such as MSSQL, Oracle, DB2, PostgreSQL, and MySQL.
  • Multiple data sources can be access. Either application server defined or directly defined data sources can be accessed.
  • Supports Common table capabilities, such as advanced sorting, row highlighting, and column totals and styles.
  • Compatible with the Chart macro to create charts from the SQL results.
  • Enabled for Macro Security for Confluence to control use. Datasource specific restrictions provide flexibility.
  • Advanced logging support assists administrators with usage and problem determination.

    How do upgrades and renewals work?

    You can upgrade your Atlassian host product license to increase the user tier for add-on licenses any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula, and are automatically reflected in your cart. View an example of the JIRA upgrade price matrix here.

    Add-on licences for downloaded Atlassian products are perpetual. Your original purchase includes 12 months of maintenance. To continue receiving upgrades and support after the initial 12 months, you can renew your maintenance for 50% of the original purchase price. You can purchase maintenance for up to 36 additional months at any time.

    OnDemand add-on subscriptions renew each month and can be canceled any time.

    How do I determine my pricing tier?

    Choose the same user tier you pay for in the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a JIRA download license for 25 users, you should purchase this tier.

    Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    What's the difference between OnDemand and download pricing?

    Just like your Atlassian host application, there are two pricing models. Pick the model that matches your Atlassian product, and the same rules apply:

    Subscriptions renew every month
    Add-ons and instances are hosted by Atlassian
    Licenses last forever, support and upgrades last for 12 months
    Instances and add-ons are hosted on your servers
    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    Add-on purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application.

    Add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Do you offer enterprise pricing?

    Choose enterprise pricing if your Atlassian host application is billed for enterprise licenses.

    Enterprise pricing includes 24/7 phone and email support, access to training through Atlassian University, and other perks. Learn more.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    You can extend your add-on trial up to 5 times – in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Free Trial and you'll be directed to generate a license at MyAtlassian. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    Alternatively, if you remove your expiring trial license from your Atlassian host application, you can re-add it back for another free trial.

    What are legacy pricing tiers?

    If you bought your Atlassian host application during or before February 2012, you qualify for legacy pricing tiers.

    • JIRA tiers are 10, 25, 50, and 100 users. The legacy unlimited tier was 100+ users.
    • The Confluence legacy tiers are 10, 25, 50, 100, 500, and 2000 users. The unlimited legacy tier was 2000+ users.
    • There are no enterprise licenses prior to and including February 2012.
