Release notes 3.2

What's new in this release

Data Center approval

Graphviz Diagrams for Confluence version 3.2 is now a Data Center approved app for the Atlassian Marketplace. In addition to being Data Center compatible, Graphviz Diagrams for Confluence is now a tested and verified app that complies with Data Center approved rigorous testing criteria. This ensures delivering a high standard of reliability in a cluster and performance at scale.

Pre-configured diagram templates now available

This release introduces over 20 pre-configured templates that make it easier for users to get started with a diagram. A new parameter Template is added in the macro editor, enabling the user to pick an existing template and make further changes suitable to their requirement.

The Template list is available to the user when a new macro is added to the page without any content inside the macro. Otherwise, the Template parameter is hidden.

Choose from common Graphviz layouts

The new Layout parameter allows you to select from the most extensively used Graphviz layouts (dot, neato, twopi, circo, and fdp) to create directed, undirected, circular, and radial graphs.

Attachment management options

Use the new Attachment versions to keep parameter to limit the number of attachments on your page by entering the maximum number of attachment versions you would like to retain. The macro automatically deletes the oldest version and adds the latest version of the attachment to the page, which optimizes page performance and space consumed.

Generate diagrams by calling other macros

The new Render wiki markup macros in body parameter, when enabled, allows you to create diagrams from macros nested in the Graphviz Diagrams for Confluence macros.

This parameter is not available in Graph from table and Space graph macros.

Easy navigation to the configuration for admins

Admins can now easily navigate to the Graphviz Configuration page using CONFLUENCE ADMINISTRATION > General Configuration > BOB SWIFT CONFIGURATION > Graphviz.

New and improved configuration page for admins

The configuration page now provides the following new tabs for admins:

  • Global Configuration
    • Restrict URL access - When this option is enabled, the URL parameter is restricted to only the URLs available in the Confluence whitelist.
