Hi Günther,

To delete a space:

  1. Go to the space and choose Space tools > Overview on the sidebar.
  2. Choose Delete Space.
  3. Choose OK.

If your space is using the Documentation theme:

  1. Choose Browse > Space Admin at the top of the screen. 
    Note: The 'Space Admin' option appears only if you are a space administrator for the space or you are a super user (a member of the confluence-administrators group).
  2. Choose Delete Space in the space administration options.
  3. Choose OK.

Thanks and regards,
Paula Silveira 


Sorry but could you specify what you need?

If you want to delete multiple spaces manually, you need to follow the link to delete spaces via Database.


  1. Stop the confluence Instance.
  2. Run the SQL Script with list of spaces you wish to delete.
  3. Start the confluence.
