Zeplin embeds now available in Confluence and Jira

Zeplin helps developers organize and collaborate on designs….we also like that. That’s why we’ve built the functionality for you to fully embed a Zeplin file on a Confluence page or Jira ticket – all made possible by Smart Links.

Embed or preview your Zeplin designs directly on Confluence and Jira

To add a Zeplin Smart Link, simply paste the URL link on a Confluence page or type “/link” to insert. Once pasted, you can view the file as a small “inline” link which quickly tells you the name of the file and the source, in this case, Zeplin.

You can toggle your inline view to a more impactful “card” view where you can see more information about that Zeplin file like a thumbnail preview of it and the time it was last updated.

Why stop at a preview? Fully embed your designs right on your page side-by-side with your technical documentation!

Great feature but anti-aliasing seems non -existent for the embed variant making it incredibly hard to view designs. A zoom to actual size option would be really useful here too.

I tried copying and pasting the link straight from Zeplin but it doesn't recognize it as a Zeplin link ... any catches when pasting smart links?

Darvin, the only links I've found it to work with are from the app version of Zeplin and when you right-click on a screen and select Copy Screen Web Link.

I've not found it to work with any of the shortened zpl.io web links.

I was just using this yesterday and updated Zeplin this morning. Looks like it's now broken. Zeplin looks to have changed the format of their links. FFS. 

Old Format that worked..



New format that doesn't...

I've managed to achieve a similar result by copying the actual URL from the browser in the web version of Zeplin when viewing the screen. However, the "flow view" (with the arrow pointing to a different screen) is something I still haven't managed to do. Help?

Hey all! Atlassian PM here. We're currently working on supporting zpl.io short links so these should work very soon.

@MatthiasRump unfortunately it only exists on Cloud for the time being.

@Jonno Katahanas Are there even any plans to bring this to DC?
Where can I vote for it?

Hi, I'm trying to use this feature, but it doesn't work here. I'm using the old editor version on Confluence... may that be the cause?

Not working unfortunately, any idea when this will be fixed?

You do have to be logged into Zeplin and make sure you connect your Confluence account to Zeplin. When you try to connect your link, a Connect to Zeplin button should appear.

Does smart link work on server Confluence or it is only for cloud Confluence ?

Any updates on this, it'll link it but won't go into embed view of the flow. just a link.
