Can I see the history for a page comment?

Let's say that I add a comment on a page, and then edit the comment: is it possible to see the version history on the comment?

Hi Lars,

Actually Confluence will indeed create a version of a comment which means the history is keep. However it is not possible to review the history on the UI as it only stored on Confluence database.

In order to review the version you could use the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the comment and "Right Click" and choose "Copy Link" of the comment operation link. For example, "reply", "edit" or "like"
  2. Those links will give you the comment ID

Use those comment ID using the following SQL query

SELECT b.BODY, c.LASTMODIFIER, c.LASTMODDATE FROM bodycontent b JOIN content c on b.contentid = c.contentid WHERE c.prevver = <commentid>;

Hope it helps.

Excellent, works like a charm! Thanks!


Whenever we add/edit comment, system doesn't create a version. so we can't see this.
