Confluence comes with a number of templates, known as space blueprints, which have a customized overview and sidebar, and may contain page blueprints or sample content to help you get started. You can also use blueprints to create individual pages.
Your Confluence administrator can customize or disable your blueprint templates. See Administering site templates for more information on templates.
To create a space from a template:
Select Spaces in the Confluence navigation, then Create a space.
Select the space type you want from the template options available.
If you want to start with a blank space (without a template), see Create a blank space.
Enter the required details (the space name and space key) and, optionally, a description.
Set the permissions for the space.
Select Create to finish creating the space.
A great building block if you are using Confluence as an intranet or to manage teams. Team spaces highlight the members of the team, and grants permissions to those users accordingly.
Knowledge base space
This space blueprint uses search and page labels to make content easier to find. It also contains two page blueprints for creating how-to and troubleshooting articles. The templates used in these page blueprints are completely customizable. The Knowledge Base space blueprint also integrates with Jira Service Desk.
The documentation space overview uses search and page labels to make content easy to find. Add the “featured” label to any page you want to highlight in the overview. This space does not include any page blueprints but you can create and promote templates for your documentation authors to use.
Software project space
The software project space blueprint will only appear if you have linked Confluence to your Jira Software instance.
This space is designed to help you organize your software project. The purpose-built space overview lets you view and edit your roadmap, see team members, and integrates with Jira Software. Create pages in this space for requirements, meeting notes, decisions, retros, and more.
