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:  https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/TwjoEg.

As of 5.6.1, this code still works.
