Import diagrams into Lucidchart and share them with the applications you already know and love. Our product integrates seamlessly with Atlassian Suite, G Suite, Microsoft Office, and more.


With Lucidchart’s automation features, diagramming on imported files is easier and more efficient. Automatically import AWS infrastructure, connect Lucidchart shapes to live data in Google Sheets, generate UML diagrams from text markup, and more.


In addition to advanced functionality, Lucidchart also offers next-level security. With the ability to limit sharing by domain and to require SSO authentication via Google, OneLogin, Okta, or Ping, you never have to worry about the safety of your documentation.
