Confluence Public Link notification email - how to manage?

Matthew Tunnicliff February 14, 2024

How can we manage who receives a notification email when a Confluence page is set as a public link? 

I expect for Admins to receive it, but recently a user of ours who is not a admin mentioned that they received a email notification letting them know a Confluence page was set to public. 

I can see this setting in my own user email settings (found here, just replace the domain with your own: exampledomain.atlassian.net/wiki/users/viewmyemailsettings.action), but that is under the ADMIN UPDATES section, so I'm not sure if that explains why a non-admin user received it.

So with all that in mind, how can I find/manage which user's receive a email notification for when Confluence spaces are set to public? Any ideas?

@Matthew Tunnicliff Was that user:

  • a space admin for the space containing the page?
  • the owner/modifier of the page?
  • watching the page?
