I have a custom status "approved". When someone edits a page, i'd like to automatically change the status from "approved" to "requires review". How do i do this?

Currently, it's not possible to use the content status in automation rules, since Automation for Confluence doesn't cover all content lifecycle management needs. Even the built-in Confluence page status feature is quite limited to 5, static statuses.

A core feature of Better Content Archiving for Confluence Cloud is automatic content status updating.

Watch this video about how it works. You can implement the same easily today.

Hi @robert aleck

If your use case is identifying outdated pages and establishing review and archiving workflows, then you might consider Breeze, available via the Atlassian Marketplace.

It automatically switches page status according to custom review and archiving workflows and provides dedicated views for outdated pages to review or archive.


In addition, its feature set includes

  • automated content analyses,
  • page review and archiving workflows,
  • page and space ownership,
  • reports and notifications,
  • bulk archiving and deletion,
  • analytics,
  • data export for all your content, ownership, and status information
  • and more to update outdated pages quickly and enhance collaboration.

👉 Feel free to give it a try or schedule an appointment with me for a personal demo.

Cheers, Adrian from B1NARY (the developers of Breeze)
