Administer a Space

If you're a space admin, for either a site or personal space, there are various things you can change about that space. For example, you can change the space's name, description, look and feel, and permissions. You can even create templates to speed up page creation in the space.

The space's sidebar is another area you can customise to suit your needs, by adding shortcut links or changing the space logo.

To view the space tools page:

  1. Go to the space and choose Space tools > Permissions from the bottom of the sidebar

  2. The 'Space Permissions' page displays.

The administration options are divided into the following categories.  Some options may not be applicable for personal spaces. 

You can also customise the sidebar, including changing the space logo and adding shortcuts to other spaces - see Configure the Sidebar for more information.

    Note: The Space Admin option appears only if you have space admin permissions, or if you're part of the 'confluence-administrators' group.

The 'Space Details' page displays. For spaces using the Documentation theme, the administration options are divided into the following categories:
