Remove a document you don't want or need anymore.

Deleting a document immediately and permanently removes it from the library and deletes all its versions. This action cannot be undone.

What Gets Deleted?

When you select a document or document version to be deleted from the library:

  • All metadata about that document is deleted

  • The document is completely removed from all screens, including the library

  • The document isn’t recognised as a document in Confluence anymore.

You can also decide to delete the page tree associated to that document or document version. When that option is checked, all Confluence pages associated with that document are also deleted.
