I want to move a page and it's children to a new Space but I want the top page to be the main space page

Susan Hauth Community Champion Jan 20, 2016

I created a page and it's children under a Space (call Space A).  But I really wanted that main page to be main space page in new Space B.  So how do I migrate the page and it's children to Space B making that page the main space.  Every time I do it they end up orphaned or I can't edit Space B anymore, just gives me pages and stuff.

I have full admin and I'm on Atlassian Cloud

Once you move the parent page, select Space Tools -> Overview, click Edit Space Details and change the Home page field to the name of the parent page you just moved.

Thanks!!!  A little trick I did not know. 

That's what we're here for.

Right on.  Exactly what I needed!

Hi @Susan Hauth,

In case you need the 'move' part of your question answered...

<<So how do I migrate the page and it's children to Space B making that page the main space.>>

1.) Move the initial main page (in Space A) to under the Home page (or really anywhere you wish) in Space B. All its children will come with it.

2.) Perform the steps @Milo Grika shared.

Ah, you just accepted his answer...I'll still send this because maybe '1.)' will help someone else.
