I'm trying to create a parent space then within that space we would have 5-10 other sub spaces. I'm not sure if that is possible from what I was reading on conflunce but wanted to see.
Basically how the structure would work is we would have 5 Parent spaces (IT, Marketing, Sales, Corp..ect) Then within IT it would be (IT groups like 5 other groups) and within Marketing would be marketing groups.
Our goal is just to organize our Confluence page.
I was wondering if that was possible and if not is there an App we would be able to use? Becuase right now we have 70 spaces and it is just a lot of spaces to look through.
Why do you want to have spaces within spaces? Is there are reason you cannot just Have for instance and IT space and then the separate groups in IT would have top level navigation pages for them with view restrictions set to limit them to only the people in those groups?
In addition to the SubSpace Plugin linked by Davin, you could also consider Using Labels to Categorize Spaces. This will allow you to have individual spaces, but to have a larger grouping of those spaces. We use something very similar to this for our knowledge base.

Reviving this discussion. We are using Confluence Cloud.
We are creating a spacce and within that 3 forums of content. I want to set up "watch" notifications for only one forum and not the others.
Therefore, one solution is to create one overall space and each forum can be a sub space in it. That way, I can control what I get email notifications for.
Any other way to watch just one forum and get updates on any topics added to it?
Well, successful developers certainly develop that way. If you don't, you end up wasting time building things people don't need or want, and hence don't buy.
There are a handful of requests for sub-spaces in Atlassian's Jira. Assuming I'm reading the right ones, they've been closed with "not going to do this, due to lack of interest"
Successful companies develop with their client base in mind. If there is a need and the cost to develop is low, let's do it.
The reason why there is a handful of request, maybe it is because when people search for it, they see that since 2016 they had no interest in doing it.
If the demand was low, there would be no business case for a third party to develop a paid plugin to it.
Yes, correct, that's what I said. I'm not sure what you are not understanding - they looked at the interest in it, and decided it was too low to be worth doing.
To be fair, there are other factors - the general direction and usefulness of Confluence in the product owners eyes may have helped push it down the list, and the swathes of other requests that have massively more people interested in them will tend to take a priority. But the core answer is the same - there's not enough interest to make it worth their time.
My reason for needing subspaces is because each subspace limits search results to the content in that subspace only. I have a space with a specific knowledge base for staff, and this is further broken up into a dozen subspaces, each of which has content specific to a product range. Agents supporting customers cannot see search results that span the entire top-level space as this would create confusion, irrelevant search results, potentially incorrect messaging, and time delays.
Someone said labelling would achieve the same result, but subspaces just seem like a safer bet imo -- everything is more visible to admins, and easier to maintain. It also helps with access permissions, because everything can be managed at space level.
@Glynis_Bost A better way to do the search instead of labeling would be to use the "Page Tree Search" macro. Place one of those on each parent page in your space. That search box will only search pages that are descendants (children, grand-children, etc.) of the page the macro is on. This is much more efficient than doing it with labels.
