A recently NOT update e-mail from Confluence

I was wondering if there are people that have found a way to let confluence send an e-mail out to page creators/updaters with the question if they want to update their page, if the page wasn't edited for the last x days. We are looking for this functionality to keep the pages up to date.

Hi Edwin,

There is not an easy 'free' way to do this that I know of, but this add-on hits the nail you're trying to hit head on, including sending emails to the owners of stale pages:

If this is something you are in need of, the cost might be worth the benefits from a clean, updated wiki!

Hope this helps!

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for your reply. I did came across the Archiving plug-in as well, but i thought this was a bit too much for my needs. I'll consider it again.

Kind regards,


Note that depending on your version, the earlier pre-commercial version might be an option:

One of the more useful plugins in the market though if you have a lot of content.

We are running Confluence 4.3.7, so that's not an option. I've tried version 2.0.0 on 4.3.7, but it doesn't. We'll just consider buying the plug-in.

Hi Edwin,

please tell us which plug-ins you already have. I did something similar with the CustomWare Reporting plug-in. But I (want to) have some minor manual steps in my process, because I need to have more control. To be honest: A phyisical kick in the ass is more efficient than an automatically generated E-mail which nobody reads, but that depends on the size of your Confluence instance.

Best regards,


Hi Stefan,

We don't have the Reporting or Scaffolding plug-in. In fact; we don't have any paid plug-ins on this Confluence instance.

Kind regards,
