Search spaces by space ID - how to?

Hi All,

we have a Confluence with over 300 spaces. When users submit requests they add the space ID in most of the cases. The problem is that we are not able to search spaces by space ID but only the space name. Hence many space admins use to change their current space name it's very cumbersome to find the space at each request.

Do you know some solution in order to find spaces by their space key?

Thanks in advance,

Two ways...if they give you the site key just edit a formed URL:

http://$confluenceURL/display/$sitekey (e.g.

If you need to actually map and understand more, and you have DB access, I find that a DB query is most useful.




Interesting. Spaceid or spacekey? The actual spaceid of a space isn't very commonly used in Confluence; there aren't many ways to actually get at it.

You might have a sql macro dump "select spaceid, spacekey, spacename from spaces;" from the Confluence db if you really need to get at it.

If they are giving space key, you can sub into a url like: http://localhost:8080/spaces/editspace.action?key=SPACEKEY
