Confluence history out of order

I'm using the History feature in Confluence to look at recent changes.

However, the history is out of order! It shows version 19 as the "current" version, even though versions go all the way up to 118. Here's what I see on the history page:

CURRENT (v. 19) Jun 22, 2021
v. 20 Jun 22, 2021
v. 21 Jun 22, 2021
v. 116 Feb 15, 2022
v. 117 Feb 15, 2022
v. 118 Feb 26, 2022
v. 1 Jun 22, 2021
v. 2 Jun 22, 2021
v. 3 Jun 22, 2021
v. 16 Jun 22, 2021
v. 17 Jun 22, 2021
v. 18 Jun 22, 2021


And I verified the the version in use on the actual page is version 118 - the change introduced in 118 is present on the page.


Why is this in the wrong order?

Hi @Brian Malehorn ,

Welcome to Atlassian community. 

Are you talking about the "change history macro" ? Kindly elaborate how are you accessing the history with some screenshot to understand it better. 


Srinath T

This issue is occurring for me too on our JIRA cloud instance, and started just hours before Brian's original post.

When I navigate to "Page History" from the three dots in any page, the history is listed in reverse order and the oldest one (v1) is labelled as "Current".


The same is happening for us as well. The first version has become the current one, but only visually.. when you click on CURRENT it points to the actual current version, which is the latest one in the history tree.



@Srinatha T I'm accessing this from "... > Page history" menu on Confluence:






This brings me to a URL like this:


I'm not using the change history macro, instead I'm visiting the history page.


It looks like most of the other people in this discussion are having the same issue. I checked a few other pages and they have the same issue - the "current" version is from many versions ago:


CURRENT (v. 1) Sep 30, 2021
v. 2 Sep 30, 2021
v. 3 Sep 30, 2021
v. 26 Oct 12, 2021
v. 27 Oct 12, 2021
v. 28 Oct 12, 2021


Instead I would expect it to look like this:


CURRENT (v. 28) Oct 12, 2021
v. 27 Oct 12, 2021
v. 26 Oct 12, 2021
v. 3 Sep 30, 2021
v. 2 Sep 30, 2021
v. 1 Sep 30, 2021


Does that make sense? 

The same is on my side since yesterday. "Menu: Page History" the "Recent" version has the date tag of the first creation and at the end of the table (second row of page history table ) the last version has the recent date.


I'm seeing this too. It was working fine a few days ago. Atlassian - are you listening to this thread? Something seems to be really broken with Confluence.

We have the same problem. But I also noticed this only since yesterday. Before that, everything worked normally.

Hi @Brian Malehorn , 

Which version of confluence is it? I am on 7.13.3 and I tested the same thing but its working fine.

Even though I am not @Brian Malehorn, I will answer. We use Confluence Cloud with version "Confluence 1000.0.0-f29eef8faa45".

On my side also Confluence Cloud "Confluence 1000.0.0-f29eef8faa45" and I have the failure as @Brian Malehorn (see my post March, 1st).

Same here. Confluence Cloud "Confluence 1000.0.0-f29eef8faa45"

@Srinatha T It looks like this issue is fixed now:




For the record, I think most people in this thread including myself use Confluence Cloud. This is constantly updated by the Atlassian team and doesn't follow strict version release numbers like 7.13.3. I'm currently on version 1000.0.0-a359ee8f3f43:


Deleted user Mar 02, 2022

I can confirm that. The error is now no longer present here either. The Confluence version is currently Confluence 1000.0.0-a8b6a5f001db

Confirming too, bug seems to be solved.

likewise, mine is fine now.

Hi @Srinatha T we have the same issue, all our Page History is in the wrong order

It's a major bug for us as we must report all document version during a surveillance audit on Monday
