How do I archive a page?

I've been after this functionality for 10 years now. Has Atlassian finally allowed its paying customers the most basic and necessary function of page archiving? Or do I just have to wait until 2024 when confluence goes end of life and presumably I will have to spend 6 years porting the server installation over to THE CLOUD?

Hi @Logan Jaynes 
Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

We really don't have the page archiving feature on Confluence Data Center yet.
Although it's not part of our current Roadmap, we are actively shipping new features to Data Center.

While page archiving isn't an out-of-the-box feature, we do have some Marketplace Apps that offer many features around Content lifecycle, such as:

As Nic mentioned in his answer, you can use the Space Archiving feature to archive pages by moving pages to archived spaces. Another way is to use page restrictions as described in this KB.

I hope that helps.

Kind regards,
Thiago Masutti

Space archiving has been available for years, and moving a page into an archived space has been possible since that happened.  Not quite page archiving, but with some basic standards (like naming archived spaces as archive-original-space-name) it's not too hard.

Migrating Confluence to Atlassian Cloud is not hard.  If it takes you 6 weeks to move a huge install to the Cloud, you're doing it wrong.

Page archival is a standard feature. If you don't have the ability to archive pages then I suspect a permissions issue. Have you checked that?

That's a cloud feature I think, not available on server?
