Is it possible to hide the "Page History" for all pages of one Space in general?

Is it possible to hide the page history for all pages of one Space in general?

I know how to hide Pages by defining restrictions for pages and subpages.

Do I have to define restrictions for the history of each and every page or can I just disable the page history function for a complete Confluence Space?

Hi Bodo,

I am not aware of any feature regarding a possibility to hide or deactivate page histories. This is an important feature of a wiki in general ;-)

For some customers we already developed plugins that remove single versions from the history. In general it is possible to write a plugin that deactivats the page history or hides it from unprivileged users. With Confluence features you could only apply a page restriction.

Another possibility is to deactivate the specific URL pattern on your webserver or via a Servlet plugin module.


Hey Bodo,

I came across your post due a similar request on a support case, due to that I raised feature request CONF-34041.

So in case you are still interested in this make sure to vote for the feature and add your thoughts in there to increase it's relevance.

Thanks and Regards,

Here is a link to the article on hiding Page History from Anonymous users:

As of 5.6.1, this code still works.

Or if you really don't care just delete the version history. Did this for a Q&A test we setup where users had put the answers in with the questions (obv appears in the page history). of course you end up with no change history available at all.
