Hello,

can someone explain how i can set an expiration date for a page?

I search the documentation but found nothing.

I need to find pages for reviewing and archiving.

Thanks

Henrik

Hi @Henrik Fascher,

there's nothing like an expiration date in Confluence. As Moses stated, you are able to archive whole spaces, that's all.

You can have a look at plugins on the marketplace. There are some archiving plugins. Maybe some of them do what you need.

We also have the need for checking special pages regularly. We do this with page properties like that:

  • put a label on every page that has to be reviewed, e.g. "to-be-reviewed"
  • then put the page properties macro on that page
  • enter a table into that macro (table headers on the left)
  • name the first row "review-date" - add the date to be reviewed into the second column
  • if you want, add more properties
  • if you want, hide the page properties, so they are not visible on the page
  • create another page, call it "Pages to be reviewed"
  • put the page-properties-report macro on that page
  • Configure the report-macro, so that it shows the pages with the "to-be-reviewed" label

If you checked a page, update its review-date, the new date will be shown on the report.

Is there any update on this being possible with no plugins or apps on Confluence?

You could use the Page Properties Macro and the Page Properties Report Macro to define metadata for a page and list pages' metadata.

In the meanwhile we released the Better Content Archiving app also for Cloud. (It has been available for Server and Data Center for 15+ years, and now it is available for all Confluence deployments, including Confluence Cloud sites, too.)

You can conveniently pick an expiration date for a page, blog post, or even a tree of pages:

set-page-expiration-date.gif

When a page reaches its expiration date, it will turn to "Expired" status. 

You can:

  1. See the count and list of expired pages in the Content Status Overview
  2. Search for the expired pages in CQL
  3. List the expired pages using macros that support CQL: content-status-list-macro.png
  4. Send notifications about expired pages to authors, last modifiers, specific users, groups, page owners: notification-email-outdated.png
  5. (archiving and a lot more is already in the works!)

See the app documentation and try it free!

(Discl. it is a paid and supported app developed by our team.)
