Adding watchers / restrictions without going to tools


Confluence admin/space admin can add watchers/restrictions in the tool section.

With out going to tools section, can we add watchers/restrictions on the page ? if yes , how can we do this.

Thanks in advance..

If I understand your question correctly:

When you edit any Confluence page, right at the bottom left of the edit page you should have an edit restrictions button.

On any confluence page as well, just next to the edit button there's a watch button to manage watchers.

You can also find keyboard shortcuts to edit and manage watchers here:

Are you looking for other options apart from these very obvious and convenient ones?

You may elaborate further on your specific use-case or requirements so everyone is clear on what kind of alternative options you're looking for.

Ex: I am creating a meeting notes page, where i will mention the attendees. Only for those attendees i want to give view/edit permission on the meeting notes. As well as i want to add them as watches for that page.

In the current scenario , i have add the same user list 3-4 times.

  • once for adding as attendees
  • for restricting edit/view permissions
  • for adding as watchers.

I hope you understand my scenario. please let me know if you need more details.
