Any way to tell when a page was last viewed?

One of the things we'd like to do with our confluence instance (which is getting quite large) is find the pages that are old and that noone visits and clean them out. Unfortunately, I havent been able to figure out any way to tell when a page was last viewed. It seems like this sort of information must be in the system somewhere. Does anyone know of a macro or plugin that would make it accessible? Or failing that, how I would access the information directly from the DB or elsewhere so I could write something?

Hi Damen,

have a look at the tracking plugin from customware (

This plugin counts the hits of each page, so you can find out, which pages are not visited. It can also give you the value of the last visit.



that looks perfect, thank you kindly!

Archiving Plugin tracks Confluence page views just for the very same purpose you mentioned. We built this plugin to find the pages that are not viewed by anyone in a configurable period, and also those that are not updated by anyone in another period.

You can set up flexible rules and be auto-notified when the plugin finds pages that match these criteria (see the screenshot).

Even better, the plugin can actually do the "clean them out" part instead of you. Instead of permanently deleting the old pages (which may not be a good idea), it can move them to archive spaces.
