1. Deep and Powerful Atlassian Integrations

If you’re an Atlassian user, Gliffy is the diagramming solution for you.

Gliffy has the deepest Atlassian integrations of any diagramming app, and a long history of working alongside Atlassian. In fact, Gliffy for Confluence was one of the original apps on the Atlassian Marketplace at its launch. 

Enterprise teams who work in the Atlassian ecosystem trust Gliffy—that’s why it has three times the average account size compared to any other diagramming app on the marketplace. 

What exactly makes Gliffy’s integration with Atlassian apps so powerful? Keep reading to discover just a few of the ways Gliffy provides a smoother, deeper diagramming experience.

Diagram Directly in Confluence or Jira

You’ll never have to log into a separate program to create diagrams for your Confluence or Jira instance again—and don’t worry about embedding and updating them, either. Gliffy does all of that for you automatically. Create your diagrams without ever leaving the page, then save and publish just like you would when making any other update. 

Create Dynamic Diagrams

Create dynamic diagrams that will allow you to change the display of information to fit your needs and audiences. Expand and collapse different parts of your diagram to show only as much detail as you need, so you can work efficiently by scaling down when necessary. 

Stay Connected With Automatic Updates

Place one diagram on multiple Confluence or Jira instances and see every duplicate automatically update, so your team is never referencing old or outdated information. 

Search Text Within Diagrams

Use Confluence’s powerful search functionality to find text within diagrams. Your Gliffy diagrams are a natural extension of your Confluence page—not just when it comes to editing, but also when it comes to using them as a resource for your team.

Track and Restore Version History

View changes to Gliffy diagrams or revert to an older version in just a few clicks. When you’re collaborating, especially with large teams, this level of control is crucial to information management.

Collaborate in Real Time

The synchronous capabilities of Confluence extend to your Gliffy diagrams. Create visuals with your team in real time directly in Confluence for faster, more efficient working sessions.
