How to create a template space?


The Page Tree Creator permissions are built on top of the confluence permission system.

  • To create a new page with the Page Tree Creator in any way, you need the specific write permissions for the target space
  • To create a new page tree from a template with the Page Tree Creator, you don't need view permission for all pages of the template. If the view permission for any pages are missing, these pages will be created with the corresponding permission of the template. E.g. employee dossier could be a page tree and some pages can only be viewed by the employee and the management.
