Unable to view Unpublished Confluence pags


I want to delete unpublished Confluence pages & subpages that I had created. However, I can't seem the to do so - can't even see them to delete them. I have tried to view them via top menu option Recent -> Drafts, nothing appears in that view.

Have also tried the Recent / Recent Worked On views. Still can't see these unpublished pages.

Can someone please advise me how to view these unpublished pages and/or how to delete these drafts?

Hi @Jessica Cheong ,

Welcome to the community !!

1. If you have created a page and not published, then you can find those pages under your profile  --> Worked on section. Drafts pages will have "DRAFT" label. 
Click on it and on the right top corner, click on 3 dots --> "Delete unpublished draft"

2. If you have edited a saved page and not published, then go to the page, click edit and on the right top corner, click on 3 dots --> "Revert to last published version". This will delete particular page drafts. 

Currently  it is not possible to bulk delete drafts created but not published. There as a Suggestion request raised for this. Please vote for it and start watching for updates.

Hi @Rilwan Ahmed  I have tried Profile (RHS top menu option) and went to the Worked On section (middle of screen) and even selected View all hyperlink - still can't see the unpublished pages.

@Jessica Cheong 
Draft is displayed only when you add/modify content of a page and click "Close".  

If you don't see anything with draft label, that means you don't have any draft pages. 

@Rilwan Ahmed 

I did create a sub-page and clicked 'Close' without adding or modifying the content of the page. According to articles I had previously found, it seems to indicate that a draft is created even if the content is not modified. 

To not create a draft in this situation, various articles I had found states that you have to press the 'Delete unpublished page' option to not create a draft page.

This seems to align with my problem below. Below snapshot indicates that that there is sub-page under page 'Datawarehouse Power BI Video'; however, that sub-page is not visible. I want to delete the sub-page that is causing the 'down arrow' to appear. I can't find out where to see that 'invisible' sub-page to delete it.
