Can Confluence create an entire wiki site from a template?

I have a set of pages I want created for each new Confluence site that is created. Basically it's a collection of 30 or so documents I've imported as individual templates. What I would like is to be able to create the same set of pages on a new site when requested. Also be able to create it with the same heirarchy.

I think that Space Blueprints are pencilled in for the Confluence 5.2 release. Ask @Sherif Mansour - he'll know more.

Until then, the Copy Space add-on is a good starting point.

That's correct. Space Blueprints are on the roadmap to be delivered soon. We'd love to hear your specific need, Ken, if you want to email me at Bill at atlassian with details of the kind of space you want to create and the page templates you want to put into it.

We do that with a macro called "create-child". There's a global template that we use when creating a new space, which contains "create-child" for each standard page we want to create in the space

The example below starts by creating children from other global templates (which may also contain templates)


{create-child:Compliance summary|template=product-CIS01}

{create-child:CIS Data protection|template=product-CIS02}

and so-on

The macro we use is in Adaptavist's theme-builder, although there may be other versions available. ( )

As a suggestion, perhaps you can save your new space as a template. Once you have set up your first space and are more-or-less happy with it, use the Copy Space add-on to copy the space. From this point on, you can copy it each time you want to create a new space.

See How to create pages from template pages for Confluence OnDemand or Download. The example shown there is about creating a standard space.

Confluence Download customers have it easier and a self service option is available - see How to create pages from template pages - self service .
