Draw.io for Confluence: New Features for Professional Diagrams

Draw.io is a powerful, professional diagramming-tool available as an add-on for Confluence and JIRA, and as a free online-tool. This post will introduce you to the latest features and show you how to stay up-to-date with the latest developments.

Gliffy Mass Import

Do you have several Gliffy diagrams in your Confluence instance that need to be converted into native draw.io diagrams? The latest version gives Confluence admins the ability to mass import Gliffy diagrams. Admins can navigate to draw.io's admin screen and click on the 'Diagram Import' tab, where the following information is displayed:



You can quickly see how many indexed pages contain Gliffy diagrams. Once you click 'Import,' the diagrams are converted into draw.io native all at once. (The original Gliffy diagrams will remain in the page-index and continue to be available.)
