Gliffy creates a picture (.png file) that you can use on an external site. You can look at the HTML source of your Confluence page to get it for instance. Of course if you need to login to access your Confluence, you will have to take care of that from your external site as well.



thanks, but how can i always have access to the newest picture, so that i don't have to change the hard coded link each time, the Gliffy is updated?

If I look at the link to one of my Gliffy pictures, it is something like http://<your server>/download/attachments/<attachment id>/<gliffy picture name>.png?version=<latest version>&modificationDate=<a date>&api=<version number>. If you leave out everything after the ?, you simply get the latest version of the picture (provided you do not change the name). If that does not work for you, you can take a look at the Confluence REST API, for instance here:
