how to restore deleted gliffy

someone accidentally deleted a gliffy. How can we restore this?

Gliffy diagrams consist of two parts, a macro on the Confluence page and an attachment that the macro refers to that contains the diagram data. It's more likely that the user deleted the macro rather than the attachment.

The easier way to recover is to revert the page change that deleted the macro.

If that's not practical, go to the page attachments and download the Gliffy diagram in question. Then insert a new Gliffy diagram into the page. On the opening splash screen that appears select "Import a diagram" then upload the .gliffy file you saved from attachments. This will bring up a new diagram that you can save back to the page.

May have to intervene and force the file extension to be ".gliffy".

Check the space "trash" for deleted stuff, but I suspect that if they've deleted just the attachment, it's gone, and you'll need to go to your backups to dig it out and re-attach it.
