I was recently asked if it is possible to give some layer a tag, so the viewing-users can show or hide this layer.
That would be very nice. For example in a server-farm you can show a layer which colorises the servers with a specific operating-system.
Does anyone has an idea how this could be reached with gliffy?
Thanks for ideas?
Hi Marcus and Heroly! I've got some good news for you :)
Our recent Confluence update allows you to connect layer visibility to a certain shape in your diagram (so you'll use a shape to create a button). Here's a rough screen grab of what you'll need to use.
Hope this helps - have fun with it!
Hi @Roman Joss ! I apologize, I didn't note that this was asked under the "server" tab. I'm checking with our team to get an idea of the timeline for this and we'll get back to you, but know that this feature is currently planned for the next release.
The way the layer linking feature works is that you designate a particular shape as a "link" to enable the visibility of any desired combination of layers. The greyed out symbol indicates there is no shape currently selected for linking. Once you have selected a shape the layer palette provides a configuration mode to specify which layers you want to have visible as a result of someone clicking on that shape. In particular, there are four indicators for every layer. The bold font layer is the "active" layer meaning it is the layer upon which any new shapes dragged out onto the stage will reside. There is also a small eye symbol when you hover over a layer name that indicates its current visibility. There is also a lock symbol to demonstrate when a layer is locked and - when editing layer links - checkboxes to designate which combination of layers will become visible when the shape that is "linked" is clicked. Finally, I would say when exploring this feature, also keep in mind that the state of the visibility of layers when you click on the publish button will be the initial state for which that the diagram is first rendered.
Regarding when this feature will be available in Confluence server, we are targeting a release including this feature in the current quarter.
Hi Jan! I'm happy to share that this feature is available on server now. If you're not seeing it yet, please make sure you're updated to the latest version and then you can open a support ticket with our team at email@example.com. :)
You're right, this one came out in 9.0.0. :)
As for 9.1.0, there were some 404 issues occurring that consistently were resolved by restarting the server or reinstalling. Otherwise, there were also some important bugs (issues with diagrams rendering) that we resolved in 9.1.1 released last month.
9.1.2 was just a small update to ensure that Gliffy was compatible with Confluence Server 7.9.
My hope is that whatever your team lead was concerned about was fixed in 9.1.0. If he has any questions or concerns, he can certainly reach out before updating again!
I found this post whilest searching through the internet for a possibility to hide and shown layers in gliffy through the viewer. This is exactly what I need! I followed the instructions here and also tried to follow other online documentation, but I did not manage to get this feature to work.
I manage to create the shapes and configure the visible layers:
But as soon as I exit the Gliffy editor, the shapes lose the eye-icon and clicking on them does nothing.
Neither in the editor mode nor in the viewer mode of confluence.
Does anybody know if I failed setting something correctly or if it's a bug and how it can be fixed?
I am using confluence 1.9.2
