Is there a retention period for Confluence Cloud? I saw this question has been asked for Confluence before, but it was non-specific as to whether the question was asked for Confluence Server, Database, Cloud, or all three (previous ask:


Thank you!

@Heidi N_ Clinefelter the straight answer: Confluence Cloud does not have a predefined retention period for content created including archived. When content is Archived, it's still available for users to recover in perpetuity and counts against your storage limits. Creating and implementing a retention period is up to our administrator. Content lives on for as long as your subscription is active (for better or worse). 

Check out Content Retention Manager for Confluence in the Atlassian Marketplace, we built it to be a simple solution that can help keep Confluence space clean, storage down, and reduce the risks around long lived data. It also helps with compliance with ISO/SOC2 related to have organization defined data retention periods.

@Heidi N_ Clinefelter welcome to the Atlassian community

There is no retention for archived pages.  They will exist until you remove them.
