If you want to go to the space directory itself and not your personal space you need to go about it slightly differently. The first thing to do would be to create a space called something like Space Directory Redirect. Then create a user macro with the following code by @Stephen Deutsch. Then on the home page of the Space Directory Redirect space add the user macro to it and put this url (http://{server}/spacedirectory/view.action) into the location parameter (see below screenshot). You will need to change {server} to your server name. Finally setup your default space in your profile to be the Space Directory Redirect space using the steps that @Lameck Oliveira [Diferencial TI] provided.

Redirect User Macro

Macro Name:

Macro Title:
Redirect Macro 

Macro Body Processing:
No macro body 


## Macro title: Redirect Macro
## Body processing: N
## Developed by: Stephen Deutsch
## This macro redirects the user from the current page to a new page defined in the options.
## This macro more or less duplicates the functionality of the ServiceRocket Redirection Plugin

    <p>This page will redirect to <a href="$paramlocation">$paramlocation</a> in about $delay seconds.</p>

Ros, I solved it with a workaround.

I mark it as favorite on my browser. The address is https://<your_domain>.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/viewspace.action?key=~<your_username>


@Ros McMahon, I found a way!

Step by step:

  1. Login at Confluence
  2. Click on your photo at top-right
  3. Click on Parameters
  4. The first one is what you looking for
