How do I setup an automated review process to review pages

I would like to setup an automated review process to ensure all our pages stay current and relevant.  What are my options in Confluence to easily setup review requirements and then send notifications to owners/responsible parties?

My best suggestion here if you want to use Confluence without using an add-on you can run CQL queries by looking for pages that weren't updated for a certain period if time, 30, 60, 90 days.

Regarding emailing the responsible parties will you be using a plugin?

THanks Fadoua.  I'm pretty new to Confluence so just looking for the best options, was hoping for an automated email to be sent out when a review date is met.

Let me ask you this question to better assist you: Are you looking for a way to get document reviewed before they get published?



That may be a future requirement for now I would like a way to have a notification email sent to an owner on a quarterly/monthly basis so the page can be reviewed and updated as needed.

Email settings doesn't offer the option you are looking for(attached is a screenshot)

I will suggest you to check some plugins on the Atlassian Marketplace. Confluence out of the box doesn't have that option

Need an enhancement to say email monthly/quarterly/yearly for Review beginning on xx day/month/year.


Thanks for your help, I will look at plugins!

@mchristenson Did you end up deciding on a plugin?

Natively, it is not possible to setup review/approval process in confluence. You can look at third partly plugin such as Comala Document Management

If you don't want a plugin, you can think of creating pages and apply restrictions/permissions only to reviewers and once approved you can open its permissions to everyone else for viewing.
