Question about how to import Gliffy scheme to



We use Gliffy since many years and now we are very interested about plugin in Confluence but hoe could we convert Gliffy draw to

I try to do it in the evaluate version a but nothing appears after importation of the .gliffy file generated by the Gliffy confluence plugin.

I saw on internet that it is possible since soon ( but how can we try it.

We use Confluence v5.4.3 and v3.10.1

Hi Oliver,

Since David answered this question for you, I'll set this as resolved.




Doesn't it make more sense to set my answer as the accepted one rather than yours? And shouldn't yours be a comment since it doesn't answer the question?

In the latest plugin version you can import Gliffy saved files via File->Import.

You can also save the Gliffy attachment and drag and drop it into a new diagram, see this video

On the video, at 0mn 47s, from where do you grab the image (png)?

It's the Gliffy attachment I save at 32 seconds. I drag and drop it from the filesystem into the blank diagram.

"from the filesystem" Ok, because what is shown on the video makes me think that we have to drag'n drop something from the left panel... So when I drag'n drop a .gliffy file from my filesystem to the diagram, it displays a 'text block' with the json content instead of the scheme.

For completeness, the problem here is that the version of is too old and doesn't have Gliffy import.

That's the old issue tracker, but the feature is in progress. The first beta will be early next year. I suggest to send an email to and we'll add you to the beta testers list.
