Restoring a Deleted Page

When you restore a page, you are moving it from 'Trash' to the root of the space.

You need to be a space administrator to restore deleted pages.

To restore a deleted page:

  1. Go to the space and choose Space tools > Content Tools on the sidebar. 
  2. Choose Content Tools > Trash
  3. A list of deleted pages and blog posts for the space displays. Choose Restore for the page you wish to restore.

If your space is using the Documentation theme: 

  1. Choose Browse > Space Admin at the top of the screen.Note: The 'Space Admin' option appears only if you have space admin permissions for the space or you have System Administrator global permissions.
  2. Choose Trash from the space administration options
  3. A list of deleted pages and blog posts for the space displays. Choose Restore for the page you wish to restore.

To find the page after you have restored it, choose Pages to go to the root of the space. (The page is not restored to its original position in the page hierarchy.)

  • If a new page has already been created in that space with the same name as the deleted page, you will be given an option to rename the page before it is restored.
  • If the page had any child pages before it was deleted, Confluence moved the child pages to the root of the space when the page was deleted. The parent-child relationship will not be automatically restored when you restore the page.
