I understand that when Adding a space, there is a field where a Space Key (an abbreviation of the Space Name that can be used in macros, etc...) can be defined. However, I'm unable to find a way where this key can be changed - or added, if one was not assigned when the space was created. The Space Admin page doesn't have it. Thanks for any help!
You can use this to change the space key.
Copy the space with this plugin. While copying the space you'll be prompted to type in the name of the space and space key. After changing those, export the space you copied with the new space key and import it to the confluence instance you want.
Download the Copy Space for Confluence plugin and install it
For manual installation;
Administration > Global configuration > Manage add-ons > Upload add-on > browse (select the jar file you downloaded) > Upload
To use plugin;
Spaces > Space directory > click on the space you want > Space tools > Content Tools > Apps > type in new space name and key (you can check the boxes to copy the options specified) > Save
Your Space Directory should have your copied space with the new name and space key. Now you can delete the space with the old name.
Confluence Cloud already has the copy space plugin so all you need to do is go to the space you want to rename or change the space key, click on Space Settings > Copy Space > fill in the new Space Name and Space Key > click on Copy (ensure all copy options are checked). Confirm that you have a space with the new space name or space key then delete the old space.
