Just to get things right, I created a space and now I would like to rename it, not the space key, I was able to find the space settings, but I have no buttons or visible actions where I can change the space name. So renaming is also restricted in free account?
Just kinda find it weird for limiting this function for free account if that's the case.
Hey all, thanks for using Confluence Cloud Free!
@Kiran_Panduga__Appfire_ 's answer on renaming a space is correct. There aren't limits on renaming spaces in Cloud free.
However, there is currently a bug with how the onboarding wizard sets permissions on the first space that's created in the site. Because of the bug, the very first space created (which the wizard makes during site creation) isn't administrable. We're working on fixing this up and when it's patched, all Free instances should be able to modify that first space again. You can track progress on this bug at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-68319.
For @Richard_Hodgson specifically, renaming the space doesn't affect the space key. On Cloud, there's no supported way to change the space key (the all-caps characters that appear in the URL). What you can do is create a new space and copy all the content from the old space to a new space that has the desired key. The quickest way to do that is with a plugin - Copy Space for Confluence by Artemis Software . On the free end of things, you can manually move all the pages one at a time with Confluence's built-in Move function. Depending on how many pages are in the space, moving them individually might be easy.
Hope that helps clarify things!
Hi there, I was able to solve the problem by creating a new space, the new space gives me ability to modify the space name.
However, the initial space was created thru an introduction guide when I sign up Confluence, I wasn't added to the space admin. I'd say this is more like a bug?
Anyhow, I temporarily upgraded to the standard plan and deleted this initial space after that, I downgraded to the free one. Now I can create space and modify space name just what I expected.
It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
