Is there a way to see who deleted a Confluence Page and when it was deleted?

It seems that there is no audit trail to determine who deleted a confluence page and when it was deleted. Is there a way I can find this information?

Hi @Joe Sapinoso,

There is no means to find out who deleted a page indeed. There's a documented workaround for the server platform, but that requires access to the database.

However, in the assumption that you would like to recover the page: a deleted page is moved to the Confluence trash (space settings > content tools > trash), from where it can be recovered.

Have a look at the documentation  on how you can do this.

Thank you for confirming this @Walter Buggenhout _ACA IT_ !

Hi Joe,

Confluence trash does not provide this data OOTB

I can suggest to options to resolve the issue:

1. Don't provide delete page option to user, and instead create a new space called Recycle Bin  and ask all users who wish to delete a page  - to move the page to this space. With this option every moved page to trash will have the user name and need. 

2.You can user the ScriptRunner Addon, and create a Listener , which in "Page Trashed" event will record the user and time info of the deletion and add the information to a new Log Page, in a table so you can sort the data and even export it to PDF or Word (for traceability recording). 




Nice suggestions @yaniv_shoshani , thank you!
