How to automatically create child pages when a new project is created?

I have been trying to write some java code which will listen for when a page is created and automatically generate a set of child pages.

I believe I need some data from the event which I have, but I also need to have a pagemanager and a labelManager.

I'm not sure where to get the data from to construct these two, any help would be much appreicated.

Snippet of the code so far:

public void onBlueprintCreateEvent(BlueprintPageCreateEvent event)

 PageManager pageManager;
 LabelManager labelManager;

System.out.println("made it here ...................................");
ModuleCompleteKey moduleCompleteKey = event.getBlueprintKey();

if (!MY_BLUEPRINT_KEY.equals(moduleCompleteKey)){
System.out.println("my_blueprint_key= " + MY_BLUEPRINT_KEY + "moduleCompleteKey= " + moduleCompleteKey.toString());

Page topPage = event.getPage();
Space ourSpace = topPage.getSpace();
Map<String,Object> blueprintContext = event.getContext();

System.out.println("2ND PRINT ...................................");
if(topPage == null)
System.out.println("topPage EQUALS NULL");
if(ourSpace == null)
System.out.println("OURSPACE EQUALS NULL");

Page subPage = null;
subPage = new Page();

if(pageManager == null)
System.out.println("pageManager EQUALS NULL..................................");

//pageManager.saveContentEntity(subPage, null);
//labelManager.addLabel((Labelable) subPage, new Label("NewPage"));

Hi Cliff,


I think you will need to inject PageManager and LabelManager by using Spring constructor injection or setter injection.


private PageManager pageManager;



public ClassName(PageManager pageManager) {

    this.pageManager = pageManager;



Hi Christo,

The problem was @component import needed to be included in the constructor, ill post a snippet below for peoples future reference:

public class MyPageCreatorModule extends AbstractBlueprintContextProvider {

public PageManager pageManager;

public MyPageCreatorModule(@ComponentImport PageManager pageManager) {
this.pageManager = pageManager;

Hey @cliff kirkman , does your code work?

Does it create random child-pages or can you do a template for the child-pages aswell?

If yes I would be super gratefull if you could explain to me how to implement it <3

Kind regards.
