Can you automatically create a confluence workspace from a Jira (download) project?

I understand that Jira on-demand creates a confluence workspace automatically - can the same functionality be replicated with the download version?

This can be achieved by creating a service which will check for number of projects and if a new project is found it will create a space in Confluence .

I had done this using script runner plugin and wrote a groovy service .

Hi Mizan, many thanks for the advise. I'll have pass this info onto my developers and get them to look at this.

Hi Mizan - do you have an example script which you can share, so that I can pass this onto my dev team - much appreciated.

import org.swift.common.soap.confluence.ConfluenceSoapServiceServiceLocator
import org.swift.common.soap.confluence.RemoteSpace

def locator = new ConfluenceSoapServiceServiceLocator()
def service = locator.getConfluenceserviceV2(new URL("http://localhost:8090/confluence/rpc/soap-axis/confluenceservice-v1"))
def token = service.login("admin", "admin")

def page = new RemoteSpace (
        description:"this is a space automatically created via Jira "
service.addSpace(token, page)

Many thanks Mizan

Hi Mizan, I have created a similar script and tried to execute it from script console in Jira (my goal is to create a NEW confluence page, related to an existing space, when a NEW issue is created) but I get an error on ConfluenceSoapServiceServiceLocator Import. Is it executable from script console? And, if not, from where can I execute and debug it? How do I have to configure Jira and Confluence in order to get this code working? Is there a required setting to do before executing the script? Many thanks in advance for your help Arianna
