This is a relatively abstract query, rather than addressing a specific problem, but it does have real practical applications in the Confluence installations I'm administering.
My basic question is: is there such a thing as a 'space template', and if so how can you create/modify/use it in the Confluence GUI?
In more detail:
Let's say that I've an installation where I want each space I create to contain specific pages. As a silly example, perhaps:
Or whatever. I would like to go Spaces >> Create Space, choose a space template, and have a new space created with these specific pages. Can I do this in the Confluence GUI?
I suspect not, going by the answers to the Space Template topic, which asks a similar Q. The answers appear to be:
Is this still the case? I'm not a plugin developer so (1) is not an option, and I'm managing a critical live system so an unsupported add-on is out of the question.
I've searched the fine manual for "space template" and got pages such as "_Adding a page template" which seems to describe creating a new page template. I've looked at "Adding a new template" but although that refers to space templates, the instructions (Browse >> Space Admin >> Templates >> New) display a blank page to edit.
Hi @Fred Riley,
Our add-on Yoikee Creator allows you to create space templates (i.e., space blueprints) by means of mind maps. You draw the structure of your space template in a mind map, where the nodes become pages in the space. Thus, the hierarchy of nodes-sub nodes become the structure of pages-sub pages in the space.
So, you create once a mind map, and you can create as many spaces as you need with the same structure of pages (consistent spaces).
Give it a try and send us feedback!
Thanks for the interesting reply. I'll bear your addon in mind for future projects, but I'll not be able to add it to our live system now without a period of testing and evaluation (and committees). In the short term I'm after finding out if space templates actually exist.
Have a look at our Add-on. It does exatly what you are looking for and it is really simple to use. The template is a normal confluence page tree and the end users simple press a button, filling out the form and the space is created.
