How to revert publish page back to unpublished (draft) in Confluence

Hello there David!

Currently, there is no such feature in Confluence. What we can do to achieve a similar result is:

  1. Access the affected page
  2. Enter edit mode
  3. Copy all the page content
  4. Exit edit mode
  5. Create a new page
  6. Paste the content
  7. Do not publish the page
  8. Go back to the affected page
  9. Delete it
  10. Proceed to keep working with the newly created page

Let us know if this workaround works for you David!

Thanks, @Diego_Canto_Rodrigues that Jira would provide a solution for this, but in the meantime this is a good workaround. Thanks. David

you guys have to add this feature - please please please

I agree, it surprises me it's not there! The workaround marked as solution is just that... a work-around this issue. Please address this. It shouldn't be that hard, right?
