Delete a Version

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

Deleting a document version immediately and permanently removes it from the version history table. You can also choose to delete all document versions at once.

Deleting a version cannot be undone. In all cases, you have the option to keep the underlying Confluence pages.

What Gets Deleted?

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

  • All metadata about that version is deleted

  • The document is completely removed from all screens, including the version history table

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

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