How do you archive pages under a space and all its contents?

Krista Dyer March 21, 2023

I want to be able to archive a page which has pages attached to it or are under that main page.

Is there a way to do this? or do you have to manually archive each page separately? Example: 

Space X

 

  • Main Page 1
    • Page A
    • Page B
    • Page C

I want all of Main page from A - C to archive together.

When you archive a page that have child pages you will be asked if you also want to archive the children too:

This is what I am getting. image.png

 

It is not showing the nested pages so it wont let us get all of it in one archive. We have to go through each one.

Okay, so on standard plan the nested archiving is not an option, you need to be on the premium plan in order to have that feature. This KB has more information about it.

@Krista Dyer thanks for asking this question! It's been on my mind for some time and just haven't headed over here until today. Unfortunately, I have now learned that we have a standard plan :( but I'm going to see if we can change that. There is so much cleanup to do on our site.

@Mikael Sandberg thanks for such a clear answer.

With the Better Content Archiving app, you can bulk-archive pages even if you are not on the Premium plan!

You can enter a CQL to select the pages to archive and the background job (at its next scheduled execution) will archive all those in one go:

The automation shown above will start on each Sunday 00:00 (in GMT) and archive all pages that are in the "To archive" status without any manual work!

See the tutorial: https://www.midori-global.com/products/better-content-archiving-for-confluence/cloud/documentation/configure/automation-schemes#configure-scheme

Hi @Krista Dyer ,

If your use case is cleaning Confluence and removing many outdated pages, you might check out Breeze, available via the Atlassian Marketplace.

It automatically identifies outdated pages and implements review and archiving workflows for keeping your pages up-to-date (plus supports bulk archiving).
