Deleting a space permanently removes the space and all of its contents, including any calendars and questions linked to that space. Only someone with space admin permissions can delete that space.

(warning) Deleting a space is permanent  it does not go to the trash and cannot be undone.

If you're unsure about deleting a space, create an XML export of the space as a backup before proceeding. You can then restore the space from the XML export file if you need to.

To delete a space:

  1. Go to the space and choose Space Tools > Overview from the bottom of the sidebar.
  2. Choose Delete Space
  3. Choose OK

Members of the confluence-administrators group can also delete spaces, including personal spaces.
