Should no licenses of add-on match no licenses for Confluence

We are interested in purchasing the add-on Gliffy. But we don't need as many licenses for it as for Confluence. Only a small number of users will use the add-on.

Can we buy the add-on with less licenses than we have for Confluence?

And how will this work?

Creately, will let you have a different license than your Confluence license. Another option to look at is Diagramly ... which is free and really good.

We have two key requirements: Confluence/JIRA integration and MS Visio import. Is MS Visio import supported by Creately? Diagramly?

Creately can do Visio import and is for Confluence and Jira. Diagramly is only for Confluence right now but it can imort .vdx files. You might want to get a trial and test how well the Visio fles import. I've had some that have been a bit wonky.
