When a user deletes a page from a Confluence space, the page is not permanently removed. Instead, Confluence places the deleted page into the 'Trash'. The page will remain in 'Trash' until a space administrator purges the page.

Purging deleted pages permanently clears them from 'Trash'.

You need to be a space administrator to purge deleted pages for a space.

To purge deleted pages:

  1. Go to the 'Space Admin' tab of the Browse Space view. To do this:

    • Go to a page in the space, open the 'Browse' menu and select 'Space Admin'.
      (info) 'Space Admin' is displayed only if you are a space administrator for that space or you are a Confluence system administrator.

  2. Click 'Trash' in the left-hand navigation panel. A list of deleted pages and blog posts for the space is displayed.

  3. Click the 'Purge' link beside a page or else click 'Purge All' to permanently clear all deleted pages and news items.
