Each Confluence space has a space key, which is a short, unique identifier that forms part of the URL for that space.

When you create a site space, Confluence will suggest a space key or you can enter your own key to make it more memorable.

For example, you might give your marketing team's space a key of MARKETING. You can then navigate directly to the space using a URL like this - http://<yoursite>/display/marketing

(info) Personal spaces always use your username as the space key.

Choosing a space key

Each space key:

  • Must be unique.

  • Can contain any alphanumeric character (a-z, 0-9).

  • Can be up to 255 characters long.

(warning) You can't change the space key after you create your space, so choose your space key carefully!
