URL or hyperlink to page creation via template

Hi - I'd like to use a hyperlink in Excel to automatically create a page in Confluence using a template. Currently I have a button on a Confluence page that uses a template to create a new page. Clicking this button goes to a URL that guides the creation of a page in a certain space using the template ID. e.g. https://[confluence]/?templateId=65175583&spaceKey=[spaceID]&newSpaceKey=[spaceID]&title=GPYYNNNN


**I have replaced the actual address and space keys with [dummy IDs]**.


I copy this link and paste it into Excel but when I click on it, instead of opening a new page using the indicated template, it opens an 'updates' page on confluence (#all-updates). Does the URL only work as part of a clicked button on a page?

Hi Matthew,

The button has some extra code in there to help it run, but it looks like it ultimately redirects to a different URL:


I tested this, and it seems to work for me. Give it a try and let us know how it goes!

Kind Regards,


Hi Jason - works a treat, thanks. I can also use values in the Excel file to populate the title; even cleverer!

Note that you can also use the GET parameter fromPageId=XXXXXX to create the page under a parent page with id XXXXXX.

Looks good. Is there an documentation which parameter I can add to the URL... add a label, add a watcher and so on?!?!

Unfortunately I haven't seen any such documentation.  I just experimented with manually adding pages and copied parameters from there (it can be a bit annoying though as it sometimes redirects quite quickly).

Maybe @Jason B can direct us to some documentation?
