Lost draft when truncate events table?

Hello, we wanted to know If we lost draft pages if we truncate this tables.


 Our table events is very large and I would like reduce.

Yes, truncating these tables will purge all drafts from the instance, make sure you test on a test environment first and disable Collaborative Editing before proceeding.




Hi, I truncate this tables but not purge all drafts. I try on development environment.

I´m not sure to do in production environment.. :(

As I tested in a local environment, when turning collaborative editing off, Confluence switches to the old behavior of personal drafts. But the shared drafts still remain in the database. When you truncate the tables and switch on collaborative editing, Synchrony will recover from the existing shared drafts. So if no editing is done during collaborative editing is off, no shared drafts should be lost. Can anyone confirm this?

@Igor M_ Could you please confirm what happens to "Any data" in a Confluence Production instance, if we ('disable collaborative editing -> Truncate synchrony tables -> Enable Collaborative Editing) ??


The impact is described in the above referenced KB:

Please note that turning Collaborative editing OFF and ON again may remove any unsaved drafts. You may refer to this page -How Do Drafts Work on Confluencefor detailed information regarding drafts. Please follow the steps below to identify and publish unpublished drafts.

That is the only impact on the data you should observe. Saying that, taking necessary backups before the action is always advised.
