How can i create a space from a blueprint in Java


this question is very close to this one: create page from blueprint in java

the difference is that my goal is to create a space.

I created a space-blueprint in my plugin and want to create a space based on this blueprint.


I found the following classes but can't figure out how i can achieve my goal:

SpaceBlueprintManager  (Is not an OSGI Component - @ComponentImport doesn't work)

SpaceBlueprintService (Seems like it needs the SpaceBlueprintManager, but can't figure out how to get the manager)


The ContentBlueprintManager is apparently only for creating pages ..


any help is appreciated :)

Ok found a REST-Method, no need to use java api:


Method: POST


Content-Type: application/json

User-Agent: xyz      -> Just use some dummy here e.g. 'xyz' :)



        "name": "NAME",
        "description": "DESCRIPTION",
        "context": { },
        "permissions": "PERMISSIONS",
        "spaceBlueprintId": "ID",
        "spaceKey": "SPACE-KEY"



You can get the space Blueprint id by using this method:

Method: GET


this will give you a list with all space blueprints and their ids :)

Thank you @Maximilian 

I tried your suggestion and it works!

The below request creates a space with Knowledge base template

curl -u admin:password -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d'{"spaceKey":"KM","name":"KB API Test","spaceBlueprintId":"279af294-8caa-4b6d-88f8-67161c18a060","context":{"name":"KB API Test","spaceKey":"KM","spaceDesc":"REST API Space creation using Knowledge base template ","noPageTitlePrefix":"true","ContentPageTitle":"KB API Test"}}' http://localhost:8090/rest/create-dialog/1.0/space-blueprint/create-space

The key is, we need to specify the spaceBlueprintId as part of JSON payload otherwise it will just create the default blank space. We can also get the spaceBlueprintId for each space template from AO_54C900_SPACE_BLUEPRINT_AO
