"Archive" a Space

We have several Spaces that are no longer actively used. We'd like them not to appear on the Dashboard - but, we don't want to delete them and their contents.

Is there a way to accomplish this type of "archiving"?

Hi Dave,

Editting my comment:

It seems that we had a feature request for this in our bug tracker: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-3921

It was fixed recently in Confluence 4.3 which added the functionality to the application:


Additionally there is a plugin which can add the functionality as well:


I hope this helps you :)



So, if I understand the issue in the bug tracker - Atlassian considers it "fixed" because a 3rd party plugin provides the functionality...

Which, I take it, means Atlassian is not going to make this core functionality of the application?

That's disappointing, given the cost of the plugin, which is not insignificant.

Hi Dave,

I've just edited my comment with my findings. The feature was added to the application in version 4.3. So that might be interesting to you :)

Ah, yes! Much more interesting... I'm headed to the documentation now... Thanks!
