How to Use the Lucidchart connector for Confluence Server

To attach a diagram to a page

  1. Navigate to any Confluence page and select "+" or type the shortcut “{“ to open a drop-down menu where you can select “Lucidchart.”
  2. In the pop-up window, insert an existing diagram, create a new one, or import a Visio, Gliffy, draw.io, or OmniGraffle document directly.
  3. For new diagrams, click the orange “+Document” button. The arrow will open a template picker for different types of diagrams. Creating a new document will open our editor in a new tab. This short tutorial explains the basic components of creating your diagram.
  4. After creating your document, you can then insert it into the Confluence page. A new panel will appear on the Confluence page that contains all diagrams attached to it.

Lucidchart team management

This table lists users currently on your Lucidchart team and shows whether they have connected their Lucidchart account to Confluence. Users that appear here have access to all the features and functionality of Lucidchart. You can manage additional team settings from the Team page at lucidchart.com or from the second table on the User Management page.
