Confluence - Create Multiple Pages and Sub-Pages from a Template

In Confluence 4.0 (or newer) I would like to know if it is possible to use templates to automatically create MULTIPLE pages and perhaps SUB-PAGES. For example I would like a Page with content created and 4 pages under it (as child pages) and perhaps a hierarchy of other pages created below those pages) all from 1 template. Any ideas?

Hello Adam,

We have a Feature to create pages using a Template through Confluence, but, unfortunately, to add multiple pages regarding a template isn't a feature on Confluence. It's an interesting question to have this Feature on Confluence, work on it with developers.

The best I can provide to you at the moment is to create a page with template on Confluence:

And also, the copy Space plugin, that allows you to copy multiple spaces with some information on it:;jsessionid=hjqckb4x64iy1gi8oapbwo62

Hope it helps you!


It would be amazing to have the feature "Space template" ! certainly it would save a lot of workload when creating new spaces ! This is a high requested feature.. so i hope it comes along with near future updates :)

Is there currently an issue/story to track this request? I'd like to mash the upvote button on that bad boy.

Has any progress been made on this for the Cloud version of Confluence? I need a "tree template" to create a page and a series of sub-pages.



Yes, i need this feature too. 
I want to be able to:

  • create a page with sub pages
  • set the text and content of sub pages

agreed these are a really important feature.  otherwise I'm back to sharepoint.... 

Wouldn't a work-around be to create a template for a page that has multiple template buttons on it?  For instance, say I'm a large-scale organization that wants project to govern their own pages, but want to provide an "easy button" for each project to get set up.  I could create several page templates, and one "master" page template.  I add a button from wherever in the tree I want users to create their own page structure from the "master" template.  On the "master" template, there are template buttons for other page templates.  Yes, there is a smidge of manual work, but it's not labor intensive, and automating that wouldn't save more than a minute or two during setup.  On top of that, perhaps not every project requires the same number of standard child pages, so you can modularize your page tree based on needs, and not just create pages that now someone has to go clean up!


Just my two cents.



Hi, what is the status of this feature?

Hi Adam MyattCoen HuijsmansOlof Svenssonswetha bammidi,

Our add-on Yoikee Creator allows you to create space templates (i.e., space blueprints) by means of mind maps. You draw the structure of your space template in a mind map, where the nodes become pages in the space. Thus, the hierarchy of nodes-sub nodes become the structure of pages-sub pages in the space. 

So, you create once a mind map, and you can create as many spaces as you need with the same structure of pages (consistent spaces).

Give it a try and send us feedback!

We are about to release the 2.0 version, where you can choose page blueprints in the nodes (JIRA reports, blog post, file list, etc), mind maps can be embedded on pages, new rendering engine, and many more new features.




For your information, there's an existing feature request for this:


I too want this feature

Hi Adam,

Our Page Tree Creator can do your job without any programming.

Marketplace User review for our Page Tree Creator:
Page Tree Creator is absolutely fantastic. It is simple to use, well documented, and has great functionality. One of our departments has a 20+ page structure that they want in place for each of the companies they track. It took me less than an hour to set up Page Tree Creator such that they can go to a page, enter the name of a new company, click a button and immediately have the entire structure built out for that company. It plugs the company name into every page title to keep pages unique. We maintain a tree of the template pages to use and everything on those pages ends up in the new pages, any text, labels, macros. Very powerful and a huge time savings.

Under this link you find our Live Examples.

this is awesome but doesn't work on the Cloud Version sadly
