How do I export a Gliffy from Confluence?

I’ve got drawings that were created using the Gliffy editor in Confluence.

 I need to get the source file so that I can make revisions and bring it into our content management system.

 Is there a way to export a Gliffy file to something I can import to Visio? I tried downloading the Export Gliffy to PDF Pluggin, but I’m not getting anywhere with the resulting “.rar” file.

 Looking through proposed solutions, nothing seems to be matching my use case…

 Can you point me in the right direction. I’d hate to have to re-author these diagrams.

Visio should recognise SVG format, can you try exporting your Gliffy into SVG following instructions on Exporting Diagrams page?

You can export to PDF too, but for better quality, you are boffer of printing into PDF rather than exporting, using print dialogue.

Hope this helps


Download the Gliffy file, drag and drop into a blank editor at, then after import, File->Export As->.vsdx and load that .vsdx in Visio.

Thanks a lot for this fine !

Worked perfectly, thanks!

Awesome, worked perferctly for me also, thank you!

You can export the diagrams as JSON. Edit the diagram, right mouse on a blank space in the diagram and select "View Source...". Then click Select. Then Control C to copy and then you can paste it in a json file and check it into SVN if you like. Not terribly fun to get it back into Gliffy but it is possible.
