There is no native functionality in Confluence, neither a plugin I could think of that could 100% cover all the needs to comply with regulatory requirements (I suspect this to be the source of requirement).
For such needs, I usually suggest to use database level auditing, like Oracle offers the functionality of audit trail, where you are able to precisely log all changes on a DB level. Of course still this data have to be processed afterwards.
Could you provide some more specifics? Change history of what kinds of content and features - everything? Pages, attachments, blogs, comments, plugins, hierarchies, permissions, labels, metadata.....?
It's a good question and one I've run across a few times so just wondering if you have anything more specific in mind.
I have a similar need, although mine is specific to administrator functions. Ideally I need to know who (which admin) changed which configuration item from what old value to what new value. This includes project permissions, global templates, and application configuration (security, attachement, backups, etc.).
We are happy to announce that we have released an add-on that adds administration audit trail capability to Atlassian Confluence.
The add-on is available at https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.enhancera.auditor.confauditor for your evaluation.
Auditor for Confluence add-on functionality and user interface are similar to the recently added JIRA audit log feature.
For each administrative event the following information is stored in the log:
A non-exhaustive list of the actions that are tracked:
We believe that with our experience in the field (we brought JIRA Auditor add-on to market when audit trail was not yet a standard JIRA feature), we are providing you with a high-quality tool that will greatly help in your day-to-day Confluence administration.
The add-on has been released just now, and we plan to take any user feedback seriously and add missing features quickly.
