Structural Charts display the hierarchy or structural connections in general in your company. Similar to Org Charts, but WAY more flexible.

Structural Charts

You can now display a visual representation of the connections within your company in the new "Structural Chart" tab within the People Directory. (If the profile fields are configured accordingly by your administrator.)

Please note that the Structural Charts, unlike Org Charts, is not displayed in the user profiles. Structural Charts can be accessed in the people directory, and we are planning to display them in profiles as part of a future release.

You can move the Structural Chart via drag & drop.

Use the arrow buttons (hover the mouse over the nodes to reveal them) to close or open hierarchies.

Use the slider to control the zoom level.

The Hide users button will hide all users, so that only the pre-configured nodes (here: Company Inc., HR, IT, Marketing) will be displayed.

The Center view button will center the Structural Chart again, if you moved it previously.

The Reset view button will reset all changes you made (positioning, zoom level, opening new branches) and display the default view.

Please note that if Space Privacy is active on your instance, only members of an internal group (and administrators) will have access to Structural Charts!

Configure Structural Charts

For Structural Charts to work, you have to activate them first.

Navigate to Confluence administration → Linchpin → User Profiles → Org Charts → Settings for Structural Chart.

Activate the Activate Structural Chart slider button.

If you use the Structural Chart for the first time, you should see one default "Company" node.

Hover with your mouse over the node. An edit button will appear.

Click on the  Edit node button.

Enter the name of the node here. Whatever text you enter here will be displayed within the node.

Add link (optional)
You can make the node clickable and link to an URL of your choice.
If you choose to enter an URL, the node text will become clickable and there will be an extra "open in new tab" button displayed.

Connected profile field
This input field is where the magic happens. Here, the Structural Chart receives its functionality.

Select a profile field which will act as a data source. 

The Structural Chart currently supports the profile field types Select and Multiselect.

The Structural Chart will display all users with values matching the selected profile field (and profile field value).

Field value(s)
Select what profile field value should be used to display users.
For example: If your connected profile field is Department, your field value could be Human resources.
You can enter multiple field values.

You can combine conditions!

If you want a node to display users whose data matches multiple sources, click on the Add connection button while editing the node.

Now, select a new profile field and its value(s).

You can decide if the data should fit both values (AND) or at least one value (OR).

Translate the Structural Chart

You can translate the name of every node of a Structural Chart.

To do so, click on the  edit button inside a node.

Now, click on the  Translate to further languages button.

Select a locale and click on the + Add button.

Enter the translated text and click on the Save button.
