Hello,

I would like to know if the draw.io integration for Confluence supports the Mermaid (or any other) markdown capability as described here:

I would greatly appreciate any guidance.

Thank you!

Hi Alok,

The draw.io app for Confluence can utilize Mermaid markdown capability. Here's a blog that talks you through it in Confluence Cloud: https://drawio-app.com/create-mermaid-diagrams-in-draw-io/

Best of luck with your diagramming.

Thank you for your response Mike!

Could you confirm if all the diagram types enabled by Mermaid (see attached image) are supported by the draw.io Confluence integration?

Thank you!

Hi Alok. The Mermaid syntax is supported by draw.io for Confluence Cloud. So if the syntax that you created is correct, it will generate a Mermaid diagram inside of draw.io. To insert Mermaid syntax, please go Arrange > Insert > Advanced > Mermaid.

Hi Bastian,

I'm using the Confluence API rest https://developer.atlassian.com/server/confluence/confluence-server-rest-api/ to update some of our Pages and I'm interested in updating some mermaid diagrams created with draw.io. The problem is that those diagrams are inserted into the pages as some external object that can not be updated directly with the API.

Can you suggest some solution to this? maybe using another mermaid pluggin?

Hi Francisco. It's unfortunately not possible to update the diagrams via API, you have to adapt th existing Mermaid code or insert a new Mermaid diagram.
