Is there a way to freeze confluence pages?


I started yesterday with Confluence.

I have a question concerning all pages created. Is there a way to freeze pages, so that no changes can be made for example after a release or something like that?


Thanks for your answers

Page restrictions allow you to control who can view and/or edit individual pages in a space - for details have a look on!


Hi Norbert, I don't know if Kristin has the same thing in mind but I am searching for a solution that the page freezes completely for example dynamic content will be preserved as viewed on the date of the freeze. Thanks, Carl

I don't think there's a way to do that. By definition, dynamic content is loaded dynamically. Actually, Confluence pages are always loaded dynamically -- they don't exist in their rendered state before you request them. You'd need to copy the display HTML or generate a PDF to preserve what you saw at a particular moment.

@Carl Frendo, what sort of dynamic content are you talking about?

I was thinking about user macros.

To loop back here Carl, I don't think it's possible. User Macros, as we know, are written in Velocity, which is by nature a dynamically-generated collection of content. I don't see an add-on that does what we're looking for, although you could likely achieve it in a hacky way by copy+pasting from the DISPLAY-view of the page (opposed to copying from the editor).

It also shouldn't be terribly difficult to achieve over API since you can ask Confluence for the rendered page, obtain HTML, and then feed that HTML into a new page.
