Hi, 

When trying to insert my diagram as a macro into a Confluence page, I get this error message:


"An embedded page at puml4cc-116.appspot.com says
Diagram names must be longer than 3 characters and must not contain the following characters :  / | : ; { < & + ? =
"

I've copy and pasted the text from a diagram that already works, so I know this diagram should work.

The input text is below:

actor "User" as u
participant "Frontend Backend App" as b
participant "Commercetools" as c
participant "Zuora" as z
participant "Microservice tier" as mt
participant "Mer" as m

u -> b: Makes a purchase

b -> z: Requests order summary:\n • First Name\n • Last Name\n • Email Address\n • AICPA UID\n • Access duration\n(start & end date & time)

z -> b: Sends order summary

b -> c: Requests Mer GUID

c -> b :Sends Mer GUID\nIf else:\nrefer to Med courses diagram

b -> mt : Sends: \n • First Name \n • Last Name \n • Password (Generated) \n • Partner Key (Harcoded) \n • Email Address\n • AICPA UID \n • Access duration\n(start & end date & time)\n • Mer GUID 

mt -> m : Sends:\n • AICPA UID\n • Name\n • Email address\n • Mer GUID

m -> mt : Sends:\n • Result\n • Confirmation message\n • Result code

mt -> m : Requests:\n • CPE credits\n • Event ID\n • Session ID


m -> mt : Sends:\n • Event ID\n • Session ID\n • CPE credits

mt -> b : Sends link to LMS portal aicpa.lms.com

b -[#0000FF]-> m : Succesful completion (CPE credits)

Please can anyone help?  Thank you

Hello B.,

I observe the same thing today...

In fact on the ‘PlantUML Diagrams for Confluence’ Macro, you must to put a name of the diagram on the first field of the form.

This is the related issue, and not relevant to PlantUML himself:

"Diagram names must be longer than 3 characters and must not contain the following characters :  / | : ; { < & + ? ="

You can also see on this Confluence Macro documentation:

If that can help,
Regards,
Th.
