Tousif: To find unused pages, you can use the Archiving Plugin. If you have access to run queries on the database, you might be able to modify the queries used on Finding Unused Spaces to find unused pages.

This query should give you all the pages that have not been modified in the last 6 months.

select contentid, title
from content 
where contenttype = 'PAGE'
and lastmoddate < (sysdate - INTERVAL '6' MONTH);

I'm not sure of a way to determine if a plugin is unused. Hopefully someone else can provide more details.

You can try running this query in the normal search field in the space you want to look in:

  • modified:[yyyyMMdd TO yyyyMMdd]

For example:

  • modified:[20130615 TO 20130715]

This works for me.


As Jeff wrote, Archiving Plugin for Confluence finds you both the pages not viewed and the pages not updated in the last 6 months, or whatever period you configure. (You haven't explain what "not in use" means exactly.)

Furthermore, it can archive those pages for you (which is probably a better idea than to delete them).
