Delete and archive spaces

We hope you've had a successful mission, and learned a bit about the power and versatility of Confluence spaces. Flash forward 18 months, and just look how well the colony is coming along!

 

If you need to clean up old spaces (or destroy the evidence of a failed mission!), you can either archive or delete a space. Archiving just means it won't show up in the regular search, whereas deleting is obviously a lot more permanent.

To archive a space:

  1. Choose Space tools in the sidebar (or the ) and select Overview
  2. Click Edit Space Details
  3. Change the Status from 'Current' to 'Archived' and hit Save

To delete a space:

  1. Choose Space tools in the sidebar (or the ) and select Overview
  2. Select the Delete Space tab

What next?

If you'd like to know more about spaces and the permissions that govern them, check out Spaces and Permissions and Restrictions in the Confluence documentation.
