Please see Working with Spaces Overview for information about the differences between global spaces and personal spaces.


Generally, the easiest way to create your personal space is to follow the instructions described in Setting up your Personal Space. However, sometimes you may need to convert an existing global space into a personal space, particularly if you used Confluence before the introduction of personal spaces in version 2.2.

To convert a global space to a personal space, you require the following permissions:

To convert a global space to a personal space,

  1. Go to the global space.
  2. Go to the 'Space Admin' tab of the Browse Space view. To do this:

    • Go to a page in the space, open the 'Browse' menu and select 'Space Admin'. The 'Space Administration' view will open.
      (info) 'Space Admin' is only displayed if you are a space administrator.

  3. Click the 'Edit Space Details' link in the left panel.
  4. In the 'Convert to Personal Space' section, in the lower half of the screen:
    • Choose whether to Update Links to pages in this space (recommended).
    • Choose the User whose personal space this global space will become.
    • Click the 'Convert Space' button.

Note that the ability to archive mail and import pages from disk applies only to global spaces, so the 'Mail' and 'Import' sections in the above screenshot do not appear in the 'Space Admin' tab for personal spaces. Please see Working with Spaces Overview for information about the differences between global spaces and personal spaces.
