Document approval process in Confluence


Can someone suggest me a multi-tier (each tier has three people) document approval workflow/process in Confluence?

I agree with @JP _AC Bielefeld Leader_ - Comala is nice solution!

Here you can see a detailed comparison of Comala`s apps.

For Cloud you can try : 

Hi Alexander, it seems that Comala works on the Confluence page, but not on a document attachment. We have a situation where most forms are in word or excel and need to be versioned and approved. They need to show the state of the document. It does not seem that Comala will work, do you know if this is the case or do you know of another solution?

Thank you


there's no approval workflow out of the box. You might want to check Comala's Workflows lite:

Haven't tried it, but be use the big brother Comala Workflows for Server, which adds any workflow process you can imagine to Confluence.



Hi @Radhika Vijji 

Maybe our Easy Document Signer could solve your requirement. After the approval the pages get view only and can only be unlocked by an administrator. You can find it on the Marketplace and here is a LIVE EXAMPLE.

Hi @Radhika Vijji 

Thanks for posting your question to the community. Confluence is a great collaboration tool that allows users to be notified (space/page watchers) as soon as content is created and have them comment on it. Unfortunately Confluence doesn't have a great method to help with having a multi-tier (each tier has three people) document approval workflow/process.

Having said that, this is where Atlassian's Marketplace can extend your experience with Confluence. Atlassian's Marketplace has some really cool tools to help fill the gap for your requirement to add a multi-tier document approval workflow/process to your Confluence Cloud Content.

As @Alexander Bondarev mentioned Comalatech has Comala Document Management for Confluence Cloud that gives you the ability to add a multi-tier document approval workflow/process for your space or page content. 

Comala Document Management is available on the Marketplace and you can try it for free for 30 days for Confluence Cloud
