Do you want to share the layout of a draw.io diagram but not the text, metadata or links it contains? Perhaps you want to send a diagram to us where you’ve found a bug, but you don’t want to share sensitive information.
We want to make it easy for you to anonymize your diagram data, so you can submit your diagrams to us for debugging, or share diagram layouts with friends and partners in external companies.
It’s easy when you use the anonymize plugin for draw.io – just one click, and draw.io replaces all text and labels within the diagram with random characters, and removes both metadata and links from all shapes, connectors and text elements.
Step 1: Load the anonymize draw.io plugin
To create a new diagram with the anonymize plugin loaded, go to: https://www.draw.io/?splash=0&p=anon
You can then import your diagram and continue from Step 2 below.
Alternatively, you can permanently enable this plugin in draw.io:
- Click Extras > Plugins, then click Add.
- Add the link to the anonymize plugin.
- If you are using draw.io online, paste the following text into the URL field: /plugins/anonymize.js
- Click Add and then Apply.
You’ll see a note saying that your plugin will be loaded when you reload the page. Click OK.
