    Display your Visio diagrams within Confluence

    Options for diagram location

    Automatically chooses best output format

    SVG output when IE rendering is not available

    Visio diagrams can be an attachment or a file on the Confluence server file system.

    Depending on browser capability, the best option available is used by default. Output format can be specified as either best (default), visio (vision control requiring IE rendering), or svg.

    Automatic conversion to SVG occurs when IE rendering is not available. This requires installation of appropriate conversion software on the Confluence server.

    Possibly OK for IE browsers. Complex to install and unsatisfying results for SVG rendering in other browsers.

    Vendor response

    IE rendering is the native rendering from Microsoft. Unfortunately, there are limited options for providing any support of non-IE rendering. We rely on the 3rd party conversion library for that to provide some limited support and rely on the library to continue to improve. Users with more advanced needs should consider a full diagraming solution like Gliffy or one of the other diagram tools. Gliffy, for instance, now provides Visio import capability.

    Works great! Nothing better then having a Visio diagram to backup our oganisations documentation. Svg support was difficult to setup due to very brief instructions otherwise overall a great addition.

    Some years ago we where looking for a new documentation platform. Because we are using a lot of Visio drawings we needed a platform that was able to directly show the content of a visio, rather than just having a list of filenames. So basically this plugin made us choose for the Confluence platform ;-) Although the plugin has lacked some minor adaptments to the latest Confluence versions, it still does what one expect it to do!

    How does add-on pricing work?

    Just like your Atlassian host application, there are two pricing models for add-ons. Pick the model that matches your Atlassian product, and the same rules apply:

    Server pricing

    • Products and add-ons are hosted on your servers.
    • Licenses last forever and include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).
    • You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price.
    • You can upgrade the tier of your host product and add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    Cloud pricing

    • Products and add-ons are hosted by Atlassian.
    • You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.
    • Your subscription automatically renews every month. Annual pricing is also available.
    • Your pricing tier for host products and add-ons is automatically upgraded (as necessary) when you add users to your instance.

    Price changes

    • If add-on pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.
    How do I determine my pricing tier?

    Choose the same user tier you pay for in the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a JIRA Server license for 25 users, you should purchase this tier. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    Add-on purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application.

    Add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    You can extend your Server add-on trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Free Trial and you'll be directed to generate a license at MyAtlassian. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    You cannot extend your Cloud free evaluation period. All Cloud add-ons are immediately subscribed by a user, and we provide a free evaluation of period. This is a minimum of 30 days and ends on the second billing cycle after you first subscribe to the add-on.

    How can I buy add-ons for my legacy JIRA or Confluence license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy add-on pricing is no longer available. You have two options for add-on purchasing:

    • Purchase the add-on at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the add-on at the same tier.
