Enforce Classification will prevent users from publishing or saving a Confluence page until they have selected a data classification level. This is a great way to encourage good data handling from the beginning and reduce the risk of pages remaining as “Pending Classification” for extended periods of time.

Without Enforce Classification enabled, any pages that are published or saved will be marked as “Pending Classification” until the user takes action to classify these.

Enabling Enforce Classification

To enable Enforce Classification, start by navigating to Apps at the top of Confluence and then Compliance from the drop-down menu. Next choose Settings and then Scope.

You will see the Enforce Classification option here and once turned on it will be active across all Confluence spaces that have Compliance for Confluence enabled.

See Enforce Classification in Action

Once Enforce Classification is enabled, if any user tries to publish or save a Confluence page they will be presented with this page.

Users will not be able to proceed with publishing or saving a page until they have selected a data classification level that is displayed.

Enforce Classification is currently in Beta and we’d love to get your feedback and suggestions for improvements. Share your feedback →
