How do I stop automatic creation of confluence space when a new project is created?


When I create a new project in Jira, a confluence Space with name same as the project is automatically created. Is there a way to remove this 'automation'. I would like to create a confluence space only when I need by clicking on create space on Confluence site.

I am using cloud version with standard plan.

Any help is much appreciated.

Best Regards,

Hi Sumukha,

That's definitely not default behavior.

Any chance someone in your company automated this with a plugin or a custom script?

kind regards,


Hey Charlie,

Thank you for your reply.

That's a possibility. How can I find out if there is a custom script/Plugin running? 

Best Regards,

Well there is no single place to look in Jira. It could even be a script running on a server regularly. You could hope someone docmented this somewhere.

First of all check for any apps that might do this in Jira. I'm thinking about ScriptRunner for example. This app would be the ideal candidate to achieve this. It has a feature called script listener that could do that.

Check if you have automation rules that might create the space

Check webhooks.

Thank you, Charlie!

Hi Sumukha,

Out of curiosity: were you able to identify from where the spaces are being created?
