Create BPMN process models in Confluence

You can embed the BPMN macro on any page at any position. This way, you can bring together diagrams and textual information, e.g. to enrich your process model by context information such as the corresponding process owner or referenced documents.

Embed BPMN diagrams or DMN decision tables on Confluence pages

You can start modeling from scratch or import existing BPMN files. All models are stored as attachments on the page at hand. If you edit a process model, a new version of the attachment is created.

When reading a Confluence page, process models are rendered directly on the page. The “viewer” also offers you a fullscreen mode which is handy for presentations or zooming into large models.

When you enter the editing mode, you have access to all the features bpmn.io provides you to make modeling your process models as comfortable as possible.

Permissions set on a page are inherited to the process diagrams, e.g. editing is only possible if you have the permissions to do so.
