Setting a page to auto expire


It is possible to set a confluence page to automatically expire, so that the creater and watchers of the page will be sent a notification after a set amount of time (say 3 months) to review the contents or the page and make an update.

This would be particularly useful for wiki pages for ever changing IT systems. Quite often wiki pages go out of date, so it would be good to have an automated reminder setup which will email watchers and creator.

Hi Asif,

Confluence does not offer this functionality out-of-the-box. There are some third-party plugins that may provide what you're looking for, such as Ad-Hoc Workflows and the Archiving Plugin.;jsessionid=uvbi6k17b2e2d4i4bvktldef

Hope this helps!

I think, the workflow plugin will have this functionality. You will have a workflow for every page: draft and published for example. Then you can have a process to set a page in draft again, maybe after 3 month to update this wiki-page. See more in atlassian marketplace:

You can try this plugin for free.

This is great. Thanks very much for the quick reply.

Thanks very much Brian and Christina for the solution.
