In this publishing approach, you'll author in a versioned space and publish a space version to a new unversioned space.

Publishing to a new space is the recommended way of publishing within Confluence, as separate authoring and public spaces with easier permission assignment s optimal for most cases. If you are not sure which publishing method to use, try this one!

Publishing Process

When publishing, a new space is created with only the content in the selected space version. The space is completely unversioned, and Scroll Versions is not enabled

Publish to a new space

Already published space versions can be updated by selecting the public space when publishing to an existing space.

Publishing Options

When publishing to a new space, you can choose from multiple options that affect your published content:

Publish only complete pages

When selected, all versioned pages with workflow status "Complete" are copied and added to the new space. However, please note, that sub-pages are not published if the parent page doesn't have the workflow status "Complete".

When Publish only complete pages is selected, Also publish complete child pages displays. When this sub-option is selected, versioned pages with status "Complete" are published even if their parent page does not have the workflow status "Complete".
