draw.io is the most powerful diagramming add-on for Confluence. It allows you to create and collaboratively develop graphs and diagrams of any kind directly within Confluence pages: flow charts, network diagrams, organization charts, UML diagrams, mind maps and more. A second, mature add-on with similar features is Gliffy.
For customers who wish to upgrade from Gliffy to draw.io, or who want to run both add-ons temporarily or permanently, draw.io comes with a practical new feature: the Gliffy import. All diagrams created with Gliffy can be imported into draw.io and edited as if they were native draw.io diagrams.
Import with a click
From the Gliffy menu, you can export a diagram in the ‘Gliffy’ format.
The menu in draw.io has an import function.
In the resulting dialog, you can search for your saved Gliffy file and import it.
The imported diagram is now able to be edited just like any native draw.io diagram.
Import via Copy & Paste
Alternatively, you can import a Gliffy diagram using copy and paste. Right click on your Gliffy diagram to display the context menu, then select View diagram source
You can then select the diagram source text and copy it to the clipboard with the keyboard shortcut control/cmd-c. When you create a new draw.io diagram, you can paste the diagram source with the keyboard shortcut control/cmd-v to easily import the Gliffy diagram.
Useful for migration or evaluation
The new Gliffy import function is an convenient solution to quickly make Gliffy diagrams available in draw.io. Of course, this is only useful if you have diagrams that were created in Gliffy. It’s useful when evaluating the functionality and usability of both add-ons or operating both in parallel within Confluence. Currently the feature is in beta, but it will soon be released.
