Creately Update: Creately Compatibility For Confluence 5.5

Creately Diagramming for Confluence has been updated. Confluence users can now continue their diagramming with the latest version of Confluence 5.5.2. We have been supporting Confluence platform versions from 3.1 to 5.4 up until our last plugin version 1.10.2.

With the release of the Creately plugin version 1.11.0 we are adding support for Confluence 5.5.2 and at the same time altering the support for earlier versions of Confluence. We will be discontinuing support for certain older versions of Confluence. The Creately for Confluence plugin will no longer support Confluence 3.x up to 4.0. Confluence 3.x and 4.0. Therefore Creately for Confluence plugin version 1.11.0 will only support Confluence 4.1 up to 5.5.2.

This table shows our recommended Creately plugin version depending on your version of Confluence:


Recommended Creately for Confluence
Supported Confluence Release
1.5.1 3.0 – 3.1
1.10.2 3.1 – 5.4.4
1.11.0 4.1 – 5.5.2


Why We Stopped Supporting Older Confluence Platforms

The reason for dropping support for older Confluence platforms is because the of Atlassian licensing system limitations. The latest version of Atlassian licensing does not include compatibility with Confluence 2.x, 3.x and 4.0 as these products have reached end of life as per Atlassian’s product end of life policy.  Since our plugin uses the Atlassian Marketplace Licensing API it isn’t possible for us to continue supporting these earlier versions of Confluence.

For users of the Creately plugin who are on Confluence 3.x up to 4.0 you can still download and install the Creately plugin version 1.10.2 from the Atlassian Marketplace.
