This article explains how to embed diagrams created with Lucidchart (www.lucidchart.com) in IT Glue, and also how to add hyperlinks within a diagram that, when clicked, will open the relevant assets in IT Glue. We'll refer to network diagrams but you can use any kind of diagram that Lucidchart supports.
