Business Shapes (UML & Wireframing)

Some shapes in Gliffy are only available on Business accounts. If you see this icon Upgarde_icon.png in a shape library, that means the shape is only available on a Business account.

You will have access to these shapes during your Free Trial, but not if you upgrade to Standard.

Some examples of Business shapes are: 

Software Design

  • UML Class
  • UML Sequence
  • UML Activity
  • UML State Machine
  • UML Deployment
  • UML Component
  • UML Use Case

Website and UI

  • Containers
  • Navigation
  • Forms
  • Icons


If you are not currently on a Business account and would like access to these shape libraries, please follow these steps to upgrade your account: 

1. Login to Gliffy

2. Account Settings->Upgrade

3. Select the Business or Business Team plan, numbers of users, and monthly or annual billing

4. Enter in your billing information (required for all new plan changes)

5. Click "Purchase"

6. Once the transaction processes successfully, you will be upgraded to a Business account.

Please note, we have not changed or removed any shape library availability from Standard accounts. Basic UML 1.0 shapes continue to be available on Standard accounts.
