If I am no longer a Confluence User, will my pages and diagrams I created be lost?

Hi,

I am using JIRA and Confluence on Demand, I have created a new username and I wish to operate using that one. I copied my personal space pages across and managed to change all my JIRA issues under my old username to the new one.

The old username is no longer a JIRA user, only a Confluence user. I want to deactivate that user but I just want some advice, will I lose the pages I created with that username (old one) and my gliffy diagrams if I untick that box meaning that user will no longer be a Confluence user?

The deactivate box is not showing up for me. Not sure why, but thought if I could deactivate it, that would be a safe way to keep all the pages I created and save the Gliffy diagrams from being deleted.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Shreena

Hi Shreena,

If you just remove application access from your old username all of the content that was added by it will remain, nothing will be removed. :)

Removing application access is safe, but you should avoid deleting them completely, as that will make their personal space difficult to access (but still present).

Cheers,

Matt

Or is there a way in Confluence OnDemand, where I can change the owner of pages to my new username?
