Easy "restore archived page" function

Time to time, people archive one or more pages unexpectedly. Restoring them could be easier.

    Our organization has purchased the license for your archive plugin and have now archived some Confluence pages. We now need to restore a page but we cannot see how this can be done.

    What is the process to restore a page that has been archived?

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    This should be a standard feature.  I don't know anyone that would prefer a more manual copy and paste method.   Especially, if you have many sections that need to be restored -- I'm not going to do that.

    We are currently evaluating the Plugin and also find this to be the biggest improvement atm. 

    Especially in the early phases of finding out the best-fitting expiration times, some relevant content might get archived, and copying everything back is just too much effort.

    Archiving Plugin has "Move" strategy now. This is really helpful.

    "Restore archived page" function is already there - move page from archived space to active spage again - but you need to set the "view" and "edit" timestamp manually.

    Therefore:

    To have a function which marks a page up-to-date if I move a single page or page tree out of the archived space into the active space, to reactivate the content, would be great!

    It does not matter why I move the page: Either inaccidentally moved to archive space, or want to reactivate the former old content to the active spae.

    A self-service content restore model is required to reduce the burden on Confluence admins.

    I agree with Justin. A self-service content restoration model would be extremely helpful at reducing the burden on Confluence Administrators who are apart of larger corporations / large Confluence user bases.

    I am at a loss.... we have a lot of spaces and a lot of pages... and a lot of pages, which could be up to date are now archived. And now I have to move every one of them manually to the acutal space. I can't move everything together because of duplicate page titles. 

    Is there no other way?

    @Meric if this is really a large set of pages, then you could eventually consider restoring the fresh space from the Confluence backup. If the fresh space has not been actively worked on or you will be re-apply the changes, then it may save significant amount of time. 

    I also wanted to repeat that the "restore page" feature is still in the top part of our prioritized backlog.

    Thank you for your suggestion Aron.

    Unfortunately it is not a fresh space. So I had to move every single page manually.

    I am really looking forward how you will implement this. And I really hope that it will be an easy way for our administrators. For example: Having a status page of all pages where you can just click the action buttons.

    Hi,

    I might miss something, but I don't see a "move" option available for the archived pages. The only option is available for "restoring" it is to copy it back to the fresh Space. Do we need to activate anything to be able to "move" pages?

    Hi Elena,

    Make sure you have the right permissions in the archive space, as the app takes away all write-type permission during archiving to discourage modifying archived content. If you need to, you should ask your Confluence admin to give you the right permissions or have them move the pages for you.
