Can I import a Gliffy diagram into Confluence using gxml?

Is there a way to create a Gliffy diagram in Confluence by importing a Gliffy xml file? The gxml file was exported from another Confluence instance.

Hi Danielle,

Which version of the Gliffy Confluence Plugin are you using?

If you're using Confluence 4 / Gliffy 4, there is a UI issue in that you can't import GXML diagrams when you create new diagrams using the Rich Text Editor. Instead, try this from the page that you want to add the diagram to:

  • Select 'Gliffy Diagram' from the 'Add' menu on the page (while in viewing mode of the page)
  • Select 'Import a file as a template' and upload your GXML file

We expect to address this UI issue in our next point release.

I hope that helps!

Hi Chris, this also worked as well as Sarah's workaround. Thank you! Indeed I am using Confluence 4 / Gliffy 4.

Have you tried attaching the Gliffy xml file to a page, then adding a "temporary" Gliffy diagram and adapting the diagram name to match the file that is already attached? I've done a similar thing before and it's worked.

That worked. Thank you Sarah!

Thanks, these answers helped.
