Is it possible to generate a list of spaces with their keys?

The Space macro and space directory are nice, but they don't provide any way to show the space key along with the space name.

It would be great if space key were available as a column in the space directory list.

Does anyone know of a workaround to generate such a list?

You could write a user macro to do that and output on a page.

Off the top of my head, something like:

$spaces = $spaceManager.getAllSpaces()

#foreach ($space in $spaces)
  <li>$space.key $</li>

Look at this page in the documentation (one of my favourites):

Hi David

This looks like exactly what I need. However ...

I'm not a programmer. I'm using Confluence 3.5.17. I tried pasting your code into a user macro. I called it listspacekeys, no body, output format wiki markup. When that didn't work, I tried output format html.

Unfortunately in both cases, all I got was a page of unhelpfulness, like this:

$spaces = [com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@ecdba83, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@7897a853, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@fb1a477d, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@5a059e79, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@6d4138a0, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@42c67ec4, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@a45f4690, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@2ab1ef15, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@77f52313, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@368454f5, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@b57f41b7, com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.Space@d26d183e]

Am I missing something fundamental?
