Is it possible to have Personal Spaces automatically created when a user is granted access to Confluence?


Can anyone tell me whether it's possible to have Personal Spaces created automatically when a user is granted access to Confluence? Or similarly, can a personal space be created automatically for each user in a group when the group is granted access to Confluence?

From what I've read, this isn't how Confluence works. Confluence works on the basis of "permissions" meaning that you can give a person (or group) permission to do things. Versus creating functionality for individual users (or for each individual in a group) and assigning that functionality as part of their default content, which is what I'm asking about.

Assuming the answer is no - that it isn't possible to create personal spaces automatically. Does anyone know whether you can create a personal space on someone's behalf and then "assign" or move that personal space to the person for whom you created it?

Thanks, as always, for any hints/tips,

The confluence command line interface can create personal spaces using the addSpace action and by supplying the userId.

Thanks Davin! Exactly the info I needed. :-)
