I was looking for a way to automate archive PAGE or SPACE in confluence based on flag or comment or label which user can choose indicating that the PAGE is no longer actively used or SPACE for the Project is not actively used coz project is completed and thus they should  be archived making them READ ONLY with DELETE restrictions for such SPACE or PAGE.

Hi @javed.faruquee this is definitely possible for pages! Here is an example of an automation rule that archives pages when they have the 'archive' label added:

For spaces, there is currently no direct way to archive a space through automation. However, you may be able to use the 'Send web request' action to call the Confluence REST API through an automation rule:

Hi @javed.faruquee -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

First thing: I am not currently using Confluence Automation, and I am basing my answer on what I know of Jira Cloud Automation and the documentation.  With that disclaimer out of the way...

Confluence Automation is supported with the Premium or Enterprise license levels.  Do you have one of those?

There is a trigger for adding a label to a page, conditions for using CQL to test label values, and an action to archive a page.  So it appears this should be possible.

Please look here to get started creating your rule:

Kind regards,
