is there a way to template an existing space?


We have several spaces created and some people want to copy them.  The issue is all the content gets copied as well.  And notifications and users.

Is there a way to copy a site as a template (all plugins, layout, UI) without the content and users?

Ok, a simple way?

Hi Victor,

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.



We liked the look of Space Tree Creator and wanted to trial it... but we're experience add-on difficulties.

Any advice?

Screenshots attached.

Hi Andy,

The Space Tree Creator is a Confluence App. Your screenshots show the Jira admin pages. That's the reason why you don't find the Space Tree Creator App.


Hi Stephan,

Ugh... that's irritating. I'm glad your eyes are much sharper than mine today! Thanks for the very quick feedback.

I'll let our admin know.

Warm regards,

You can try to use the Space Copy add on. Not sure if it copies layout and UI though
