Hi Mustafa,

You should be able to add watchers to a Confluence page using the following details from our REST API Documentation.

Let us know if you have any trouble!

Kind Regards,


Thank you @Shannon Spaniol,

This is for the cloude. I need to do it for the Server version.



My apologies, Mustafa! I hadn't seen the documentation was specifically for Cloud.

I found another Community question where a user suggested a private REST endpoint for that. Perhaps you can give this a try and let us know if it works for you?

Kind Regards,

I had to use the old Soap api to add the watcher to the page. It worked. I hope atlassian would include all old functions to the new rest api.

Thank you for letting us know you were able to resolve the issue with the SOAP API.

Take care and Kind Regards,

Hi @Mustafa Abusalah, Could you please share the SOAP API method that that can be used in here.

Thanks much

Thank you @Mustafa Abusalah. I was able to successfully validate this method with Soap Service.

@Sateesh JarugumalliGlad to know you sorted out this issue.
