Confluence contents retention policy

I have 2 questions.

  • Does Confluence have any limit on displaying pages or attachments versions?
  • Is the any retention policy in Confluence by default?

Current version of Confluence we are using int 5.1.5

  1. No, you can have an infinite number of versions. Caveat: I expect this will negatively impact performance if this number gets exceedingly large.
  2. In terms of time? No. Nothing is deleted or removed without user interaction.


As for retention policy, you should have a look at the Archiving Plugin.

It allows defining retention rules:

  • triggered by conditions like "if the page was not updated in the last N days", "if the page was not viewed in the last N days", etc.
  • and then archive the pages that meet these conditions

Read the plugin docs
