Is there a way to get a list of pages that haven't been updated recently?

For instance, could I get a list or search somehow for all the pages that haven't been update in a year or more. We might want to use this to make sure pages get update or at least looked at on a regular basis to ensure they are still up to date.

For download Confluence, SQL Plugin for Confluence with an appropriate query on the Confluence database should create a page with links to all the out of date pages. I don't have a query handy, but Site Statistics has some related queries.

For OnDemand, you can do some scripting with the Confluence Command Line Interface getPageList action. Your script will have to look through the list and pick out the pages with an updated date outside your range.

Thanks for the answer. I will have to look into those.

Hey Nick,

You can make use of the "Recently Updated" macro within a page or space in Confluence.

This might come in handy for you. Just set Content Type to show only pages, if that's what you wish.


I want the opposite of that actually. The recently updated would give you the most recent pages as I understand. I am looking for the most out of date pages or the pages that were edited last.

You mention not one, but two different metrics to track (page updates vs. page views).

The Archiving Plugin supports both of those and reports on both of those:

  1. Page update tracking
  2. Page view tracking

It does it automatically, and besides the web interface, it sends you email alerts every time if there is some outdated pages are found. You can set up your lifecycle rules once, and then forget about it.
