Viewing All Confluence Spaces

Quick guide to viewing spaces:

Viewing spaces on the dashboard

The Confluence dashboard displays a list of spaces that you have permission to view. Remember to log in, so that you can see the complete list of spaces based on your username's permissions.

The Spaces tab displays all the global spaces on the site that you have permission to view, and the spaces you have marked as your favourites.

To see the spaces on the dashboard:

  1. Choose the site logo at the top left of your Confluence screen.
  2. Scroll down and choose the Spaces tab.

Viewing spaces in the space directory

The space directory displays a list of site and personal spaces that you have permission to view. Remember to log in, so that you can see the complete list of spaces based on your permissions.

To view all spaces: 

  1. Choose Spaces > Space directory on the header.
  2. All the spaces that you have permission to view will appear. 

If you have a large number of spaces in your site, you can filter the list.

To filter the list of spaces:

  • Enter part of the space name or description in the Filter field, or
  • Choose a pre-defined filter or category.

Only those spaces that match your filter will appear.

The filters include:

  • All Spaces – Shows all global and personal spaces. The list excludes spaces that you do not have permission to view and spaces that have been archived.
  • Site Spaces – Excludes personal spaces.
  • Personal Spaces – Shows only personal spaces.
  • Favourite Spaces – Shows the spaces that you have marked as your favourites.
  • Archived Spaces – Shows all global and personal spaces that have been archived, and that you have permission to view.
  • Categories – Shows spaces that have been labelled with the selected space category. See Using Labels to Categorise Spaces.

Viewing personal spaces in the people directory

The people directory displays a list of Confluence users, including those who have personal spaces. See Searching the People Directory. It excludes spaces that have been archived.

To see the personal spaces in the people directory:

  1. Choose People at the top of the screen.
  2. Choose People with Personal Spaces.

Notes

  • If you do not log in, you will be treated as an 'anonymous user'. Confluence will display only those spaces that anonymous users have permission to see.
  • Permission to access a space is granted by a space administrator. See the overview of space permissions.
  • You can use the Spaces List macro to display a list of spaces on a Confluence page.
