Restoring deleted secrets
When a secret is deleted, it is sent to the space trash. It is also removed from the list of secrets.
A deleted secret is still accessible through its direct URL. However, it is marked as In trash:
As a space administrator, you can restore or purge deleted secrets. Purging will remove the secret from Confluence in its entirety, except for its audit logs.
