Pages are the primary means of storing and sharing information in Confluence. Pages are contained within spaces.

  • Use spaces to organise your wiki content into your primary logical groups. For example, you could have a space per team, per product, or per department.
  • Use pages to organise your content into lower-level groups. For example, you could have a page for a particular team activity, or for a feature in a product, or for a chapter in a book. Add more child pages to contain lower-level details if necessary.

Things you can do with pages in Confluence:


  1. I'd like to restrict the height of a region of a page, such that if the text in the region exceeds the height, the region is scrollable. 

    I looked at

    , and

    Any suggestions?

    Thank You.

    I am planning to use Confluence as a knowledge base.

    I have checked this page: Confluence As A Knowledge Base but I can't see anything regarding assigning an ID to a page so that it is easier to searcy by ID.

    Is it possible to do this?


    1. Hallo there

      You could use a label to do this. See Working with Confluence Labels.

      Cheers, Sarah

        Thanks Sarah.

        Is there a way to customise the search so that user can insert the ID in the search box and the article with that number as label comes up after the search icon is clicked?

    Is there a limit on number of pages one can create and how deep the hierarchy of pages could run?

    How do you delete a page from the system?

    Is there a way to restrict certain blocks of content within a page from view/edit by certain users or roles, or do you have to restrict the whole page?

    1. Hi Anonymous, restrictions are applied to pages as a whole.  I'm not aware of any way to restrict selected blocks of content.  Sorry! 


  6. Is there an admin function where I can add a template page to all spaces within Confluence. I'm trying to avoid having to go into each space and create one manually. Can it be done all in one shot via admin or at all?

    1. Hi Brad, 

      Yes, you can create global templates that are available in all spaces. Have a look at Adding a global template for more info.  You will need to have confluence-administrator permissions to do this. 

      Hope this helps,

    if I shared a page and and come back to it later, not sure whether I already shared it. Where can I see "outgoing mails", like a list of people with whom the page have been shared.

    Or are there some additional available information about a page anywhere?

    Would be happy to get a hint.

    1. Hi anonymous,  sorry there is no way to see whether a page has been previously shared. You might want to watch or vote for this issue  CONF-22396 - Track sharing page history Open

  8. When using project requirements pages how does one remove these from view when the project is complete? Right now we have a requirements space with all open project requirements showing. But I can see this being an issue when we have completed the project. Also do projects get assigned an id like in jira?

    1. If you remove the 'requirements' label from a requirements page it will no longer appear in the Project Requirements index page. Depending on the number of requirements pages you have, this may or may not be a good solution for you. 

      Another option would be to have separate spaces for each of your projects. 

      I'm not sure I understand your question about project Ids. Confluence works with spaces, which have a unique identifier which is the space key if that helps.  

      1. Ok let me try to explain.  Each project we add to confluence is set up a a requirements page. This is created under a space that is in place for our development group. So when you go to the space, in the left side bar there is a list of all the projects (requirements pages) we created.  Over time this list will build up, it will contain projects that are completed etc so we need another way to organize under the space. I thought categories would work but dont seem to be able to get it to work right. I would like sub space or folders if you will under a space where requirements would live. For example a folder called discovery, one called backlog, one called in progress, Deployed, cancelled.  Each folder would show the number of "projects" if contained. So basically a workflow concept for confluence similar to jira.
