Confluence add Space watcher

As a space admin is is possible to add watchers for an entire space rather than just individual pages?

When i go to Manage Watchers I can only add watchers for the page (left side) - see attachment.

Normally this is not possible, but I wrote a user macro to be able to do this:

https://bitbucket.org/stephendeutsch/confluence-user-macros/src/39c3a025dacc6b45abc0105f0b7a21a7375690b4/bulk%20remove%20watchers/remove%20watches%20for%20user.vm?at=master

Just embed it in a page and you will be able to change space watches (and all other watches, for that matter) for other users.  Note that you have to be a confluence administrator (a member of the confluence-administrators group) in order to be able to change space watches for other users.

your macro is very good.

thanks!

And maybe you can use this feature? https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-40582
