List spaces from a specific category

Perhaps I am blind and this is a stupid question:

Is there a way to list spaces according to a SPECIFIC space category?

The task is to list all "project"-spaces in a space for a team which owns this projects.

I know the macro "space-list" and it's category-option that generates a form where I can choose a category. But what I need is a space list for a specifig given category (the team).

Something like the old space labels feature:

{spaces:labels=mySpaceLabel}

Which is still working for very old spaces, but not for new ones.

Any suggestions apart from commercial plugins?

Thanks!

Perhaps SpaceTree plugin which allows you to specify the space categories: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.simplenia.confluence.plugins.spacetree

Hello TeckEn,

we will use this plugin, if we can't find a "build in" or "user macro" solution.

I still hope there is one for this core feature ;-)

FWIW, I could not find any method to get categories on the Space object. I consider this to be a feature gap.

Agree, this seems to be a serious gap in functionality.

If we have the ability to label and group Spaces as Categories in the Space Directory, is there no way within a regular page to simply list all of the Spaces that are in a given Category?

There seems to be a velocity method to retrieve the space "category", but weirdly it's called 'team labels" in de developer documentation. And frankly speaking … I couldn't figure out how to utilize it.

https://docs.atlassian.com/confluence/latest/com/atlassian/confluence/labels/LabelManager.html#getTeamLabelsForSpaces(java.util.Collection)

Apparently an issue has been created to bring the old space category feature back : https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-25987
