Embed a diagram from OneDrive into Confluence Cloud

Use the Embed draw.io diagram macro to connect to OneDrive and embed a .drawio diagram file hosted there.

What happens to embedded diagrams if draw.io is uninstalled?

The embedded diagrams and files in Confluence will no longer be able to be displayed. In Confluence, this will be displayed as if the macro is broken (no macros are deleted though). Of course, no data on OneDrive is deleted!

When you reinstall the draw.io app for Confluence Cloud, as long as the connection with OneDrive is still authorised, your diagrams and files will be displayed again, no further steps necessary.

Tip: You can also embed diagrams from Google Drive, from other Confluence pages, and from OneDrive in Jira issues
