I need help setting up my first Confluence Space. Edited

This feels like the silliest question but I think I've been staring at the screen too long.  I can't seem to find "Create Space" to start making a space in confluence.  

This is for a brand new project that doesn't have a space in Jira yet.

You can click on 'Spaces' from the sidebar and then choose 'Create Space' button at the top right-hand corner.

If you don't see sidebar, press [ on your keyboard once to that it'll expand.

Please refer to Create space document for more details.

Thank you!  Does the project need to be entered in Jira or somewhere else before I can create it in Confluence?

@Ali Meechoovet ,

That means you don't have Create Space(s) global permission in your Confluence site. 

Your Confluence admin should be able to grant you the required Global Permission to create spaces.

Thank you for your help.  I asked my admin to help me with Permissions.  I'm in great shape now.
