How to create a custom space template from an existing project


I already have a space with all necessary pages inside, tree of pages with initial content was created according to our company needs.

So, I need that space to make it to be a space template i.e. if someone creates a space to be able to chose it from templates in order to avoid manual creation of pages over and over again across the projects.

Any idea how I could do that?

Hi @Ruzhica Dragomirovska Arsoska,

Use this tutorial to create a Template for one specific space - Create a template, for create a Global template please use this manual - Create a global template


HI @Pavel Junek

I found this and read it, but as I can understand this is for page templates, not for manual space templates. 
I would like to create a space templates with relative structure of pages and sub-pages containing the necessary data within.

However I would like to have the whole project somewhere kept to re-use on each new space creation. for ex. like create a space by using the already exiting templates as "Knowledge base" template.

My apologies in advance if I misunderstood something.

Hi Ruzhica,

Oh, I'm sorry, I misunderstood your need.

Probably the only way to do this is to have "Space ready as a template" and always use the addon Copy Space for Confluence to copy it.

Unfortunately, it looks like there will be no free addons for this.


Thanks @Pavel Junek

I already try it and works fine.

But from curiosity, doesn't has some way to create a space template on my own, like the knowledge base and to re-use it?

Thanks in advance.

One option is there, but it is quite time consuming:

  • You will create a new space
  • In Space Template, left-click on Overview, then right-click on ... -> Copy -> Include X child pages
  • Then you just have to manually move the page order as you need
