Batch delete of [DRAFT] pages Edited

After 4+ years of using Confluence I find I have approx. 80 pages in "Drafts", the vast majority of which are untitled pages created just by clicking "Create" in the toolbar then navigating away.

Only one of these is actually a draft I'm still working on, the rest are all either obsolete or were never intended to be there.

To remove these I'm having to go to the Home page, then:

  1. Select the "Drafts" list
  2. Click a draft I want to delete
  3. Click the '...' menu
  4. Click "Delete unpublished page"
  5. Confirm I want the page to be deleted

This takes me back to Home page, but on the "Visited" list and I have to start again for the next draft at step 1.

Is there a better way of removing large numbers of draft pages? If not, can a bulk delete or bulk change feature be added? (Even a bulk publish might be nice where there are a lot of draft or changed pages that need to be published simultaneously)

Hi @Rob Gilliam 

A while ago I wanted to do an audit of the hundreds of pages we have in our instance of Confluence, and delete outdated content. It was a similar process so hopefully my workaround will help you.

Create a new Confluence Space, then Move the draft pages to your new Space, which should hopefully be an easier process. Once all items are in the new Space, you can just delete the Space which will remove all it's "children"
