These templates are not available for Confluence Server or Data Center.

Information copied from the template to the page

When you create a page based on a template, Confluence will copy the following content and information from the template to the new page:

If the template author included variables in the template, Confluence will display a form prompting you to supply values for the variables when you add the page.

Using a template to create a page

To create a page based on a template:

  1. Choose Create from template   in the Confluence header
  2. Select a space and the template you want to use and choose Next
    If the template contains variables, you'll see a form allowing you to add values for the form variables.
  3. Type the relevant information into the form fields, and choose Next
    Now you'll see a new page based on the template. If you added information in the form fields, the page content will include that information.
  4. Name your page, add content or make any other changes required and hit Save

Page templates are used only when adding a page. It is not possible to apply a template to an already-existing page. Once a page has been added using a template, the template is no longer linked to the page. All further editing is performed as if the template was never used. Some Marketplace apps provide enhanced template functionality. You can search the Atlassian Marketplace for template apps.
