Important

  • Keep your browser tab open while the import is in progress.
  • The time required for conversion depends on how many Gliffy diagrams are in your Confluence Cloud instance.
  • The conversion will not affect the performance of your Confluence instance. To minimise user confusion however, it’s best to mass import Gliffy diagrams when as few users are active as possible.
  • Previously imported diagrams will not be imported again.


Gliffy to draw.io conversion log


You’ll see a running log of the conversion. Copy this long once it is finished so you can check page and diagram content if errors occurred.


Log of the Gliffy mass import to draw.io in Confluence Cloud

No data is lost in this conversion process - a new page version will be created where Gliffy macros are replaces with draw.io macros containing the converted diagram. The original Gliffy diagram files are still attached to their page and unchanged.

  • Do not delete these files - they are needed to maintain the page revision history in case you want to revert to an earlier version.

From the user’s point of view, they will see the diagram in the page just as before, only now it is a draw.io diagram instead of a Gliffy diagram.
