How long page/Attachment stored in Trash in Confluence


I am curious how long will documents be present in Trash section in Confluence once they are deleted. Is the time period indefinite? How is the storage management of Trash happening?

I know if purged from Trash, they are gone forever.

Hi @Vinay Ravi

Everything you or your users deleted will stay in the trash bin until you purge it. 

You could look into a plugin like auto purge recycle bin if you want to automatically remove trash.

Personally i have no experience with this plugin so make sure you test it in a test environment before using it in production. 

Best regards


Thanks a lot @Dave Bosman _Realdolmen_ for the comment. I will check into the plugin if needed and let you know the results  :-)
