The Lucidchart Connector for GitHub

Increase your team's efficiency by adding visuals to issues and pull requests in GitHub.

The Lucidchart connector for GitHub allows you to add visuals to issues and pull requests. Simply insert the link to a published Lucidchart document into the body or comment of an issue or pull request, and the link will unfurl to show a preview of the diagram. Collaborators can look at the diagram preview or click on the link to open the document in Lucidchart and take a closer look.

Unlike static PDFs, these visuals will update automatically whenever you or a collaborator makes changes to the linked Lucidchart document, allowing you and teammates to stay on the same page as processes and systems change.

To use the Lucidchart integration in GitHub, you will need to first install it in the repository that you are working from. Once the attachment is installed, any collaborators within that repository will have access to the integration.
Please note: this integration does not support GitHub Enterprise. 
To install the Lucidchart Connector for GitHub, follow these steps:
  1. Go to the Lucidchart listing in the GitHub marketplace.
  2. Click "Set up a plan."

  3. Click "Install it for free." Then select "Complete order and begin installation".

  4. Next, select what repositories the Lucidchart Connector has access to and select "Install".

  5. Once you have installed the Lucidchart Connector, create a published link and add the link to any issue or pull request to unfurl a preview of your diagram.
To add a Lucidchart diagram to an issue, follow these steps:
  1. Create an issue or open an existing one.
  2. Paste the link to a published Lucidchart document in the body of the issue or in a comment.

  3. Submit the issue or comment. The link will unfurl to display a preview of the diagram, and collaborators can click on the link to open the diagram in Lucidchart.

Can the published link be inserted in a markdown file?
No-- if you'd like the diagram to unfurl it has to be inserted directly into an issue, pull request, or comment.
