Self service space creation

Hi, I've searched around for awhile, now, and I haven't found any definitive answers that don't involve the Confluence CLI: is there a (more or less) out-of-the-box way to provide self-service Confluence space creation?

That is: is there a Confluence API I can use through URL parameters (or similar) that would allow me to create a web page for users to create a wiki space without manual admin action?

Thanks! -Lane

Hi,

Simple URL calls won't work in this case, as form parameters for space creation require security token to be present in either the POST or the GET method, thus it would have to be modified each time. As of using an API, the following answers thread may come handy: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/156240/solved-how-to-create-new-confluence-space-via-java-api

Kind regards,

Thanks, Peter, I think that'll get us in the direction we need.

It is pretty easy to set up a self service page using techniques like: How to create or update pages with a run dialog . This does use the CLI under the covers :).
