Better Diagramming in Confluence
Ready to Take Confluence to the Next Level?
Our Atlassian specialists will guide you on how to have better diagramming in Confluence
Powerful and easy to use
draw.io is flexible and focused on keeping privacy secured. It enables users to create flowcharts, process diagrams, org charts, UML, ER diagrams, network diagrams and much more. For both beginner and expert users, draw.io provides graphic components and powerful functionality. Similarly, it provides administrators intuitive ways to customize the interface and add personalized content.
Diagramming made easy
draw.io contains numerous toolbars that offer a variety of visual elements. With the drag & drop functionality, these visual elements can be easily adjusted, moved, scaled and rotated. Toolbars can also be activated and deactivated with just one simple click of a button. This results in always having the choice between a lean and efficient interface, or one with a full range of functions. For those new to diagramming, there is an extensive library of example template diagrams available to help guide you in getting started.
Full revision History
Revision tracking is an important prerequisite for ensuring quality management within Confluence. draw.io creates a new page version in Confluence for each change in the diagram as well as the document. Review all changes in the standard Confluence page history, and roll back to a previous version if necessary.
Extensive shape library
draw.io offers thousands of shapes and scalable SVG images – built right into the shape library! Easily create all types of diagrams, such as flow charts and BPMN diagrams, UML diagrams, mind maps and tree diagrams, network diagrams, architectural and circuit board layouts, wireframes and mockups, and more!
IDeal for enterprises
Employees in large companies are often required to work with older browsers such as Internet Explorer 8. draw.io supports browsers from IE 6 and onwards (without any loss of function or performance). This makes draw.io ideal for an enterprise where updated technology is slowly integrated.
EULA for commercial use
Diagrams created with draw.io can be used in all types of publications. Resulting in both print and digital, and without legal restrictions. Our EULA is clear – you own the content you produce with draw.io, and you can use your draw.io diagrams for any purpose, including commercially.
Comparing draw.io and Gliffy
Although there are many apps in the Marketplace, there are two reputable names for diagramming in Confluence (for Server) – Gliffy and draw.io. While Gliffy is the oldest diagramming app in the Atlassian environment, draw.io has been the highest rated app in the Atlassian Marketplace since 2013. Currently, both apps are being actively developed and are free to test from the Marketplace. With the vast similarities between the two products, we understand it may be difficult to know which app is best. We’ve summarized and compared the functionalities of both apps in the table below.
