Hello Atlassian Community, could you clarify about Archiving spaces in Confluence. Are these eventually auto-deleted after some amount of time (the way Jira trashed projects are), or do these just remain in Archive in perpetuity? Thanks!
Hi @PES Administrator ,
Archived spaces (and all content contained within them) won’t appear in the following:
Confluence search results — unless you select Search archived spaces. (This option is hidden if there are no archived spaces.)
Any dropdown menus, including the Confluence quick navigation (which drops down when you enter text in the search box).
The general list of spaces in the Space Directory. Instead, they’ll appear in the Archived Spaces list.
Any activity streams, even if the archived space is updated.
Archived spaces retain the following functionality:
You can view the content as usual, by following a link or typing in a URL belonging to the archived space.
You can edit the content as usual, as determined by the space permissions.
They’ll still appear under any categories they’ve been labeled with.
Public spaces (accessible to anyone on the Internet) will continue to appear in external search engines’ search results, like Google’s.
More information available at the following link https://support.atlassian.com/confluence-cloud/docs/archive-a-space/
Hope this helps,
Archived spaces are not auto-deleted, they are just hidden so a user cannot search and find pages in an archived space. See it as a way of de-cluttering your Confluence instance by hiding out-of-date pages.
