Hi @Pavan B K,

It is not possible natively to "copy" a Confluence Space, however there is solutions around this listed on the documentation here.

Hope this helps

Copy a Space or Create from a Template workaround

Here's how I do to copy a space (or create a new one from a template actually) 

  • Create a new Blank space with correct name & KEY.

o (Keys can not be changed , choose wisely!)

  • Go to the template (or space you want to copy) overview page and select Copy for top right … menu
  • Copy to the new Space. Include all Child pages.

o Give a prefix to your pages if you want

  • Once completed, go to the new Space settings → space details and modify the Home page to be the Homepage of the Template you just copied.
  • In Manage pages, go in Reorder and move you new Home page at the top of hierarchy.
  • Delete the Generic Homepage that came with the empty space.

I hope it helps anyone.

Hey Pavan,

Since you're on Cloud, there are fewer options than Server for doing this. Looks like the only add-on that supports doing it is Copy Space for Confluence. Doing it manually in Cloud isn't really do-able since you can't import to a test environment to make sure all the references got updated.

Good luck, hope the add-on gets you where you need to be!


Hi Daniel

It is now about a year later and there have been some updates to Cloud. Is this still the best way to copy a space in Confluence?


Was just trying to find better solution than a paid plugin. This seems like a complete no brainer to have Atlassian put in place.
