Web sequence diagrams plugin for confluence


I want to draw web sequence diagrams on confluence.

Can anyone suggest me any good plugins which can allow me to do this?

This is what you're looking for:


BTW, you can use the website as a standalone tool and just import the PNG into Confluence in case you can't get the plugin installed.

I would recommend Gliffy or Draw.io both are actively developed. Draw.io is a little cheaper, but works just fine. Gliffy has been around longer, but costs more.

Thanks Davin, this helps. Both i found superb plugins.


Other possible plugins are PlantUML or confluence-sequence-diagrams

The benefit of these plugins are that the resulting image is rendered directly from text. This means if an edit is needed, it can be done as quickly as typing the changes. This is a lot faster and more efficient than using a vector based drawing tool to manually modify the image to make some space and then carefully draw in lines and text to represent the new sequences added.

A latest plugin is ZenUML sequence diagram- https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.zenuml.confluence-addon/cloud/overview . Similar to PlantUML, the image is rendered from TEXT. The advantage is that it is rendered directly IN BROWSER. So there is no network delay involved. It is not just faster, it is instant :)

You can try it out at https://www.zenuml.com before installing the plugin.
