Plans to remove trackback and referrers


    • We collect Confluence feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.

      Atlassian status as of September 2019

      Trackback enables Confluence to send and receive trackback pings when pages are linked to. Referrers appear on the Page Information view of a page, and list clicks from external websites to the page. Trackback is no longer widely used in modern websites, and because it relies on accepting unauthenticated requests to a particular URL, is a spam vector.

      We removed the trackback and referrers features completely in Confluence 7.0.

      Feel free to comment on this issue if this change will have a significant impact on your Confluence site.
