Copy a Document

Just as you can create copies of individual Confluence pages, you can also create copies of your documents. When you need to duplicate the content of a document, copying is the simplest way to do so. 

You can copy documents into the same space or to a different space. 

Create a Copy 

Select the actions menu from either the document details view in the Documents Overview or in the Viewer and select Copy

Pick a title or leave the default.

Pick a location for your copy starting with the Confluence Space and then the Parent page

When you copy pages into the same space, there are chances that there will be page title conflicts, as two pages with the same name can't live in the same space. To help handle these conflicts, you can add a Prefix

To do that, expand the  Advanced section.

By default, this prefix is Copy of which all page titles of the document pages will inherit. When you customize this prefix, you'll see a dynamic preview of the Copy's new title in the dialogue. 

The new copy of the document will then appear in the Overview of whichever space you have selected. 

What's included when you copy a document? 

This table gives you a breakdown of what is included when you copy a document: 

Document contentYes
Page attachments or images within the documentYes
Workflow statusNo – reverts to In Progress
Created byTransfers to the creator of the Copy

Yes - if you have permission to see the document pages, you will be able to see the copy.
