Is there a way to disable the option to watch spaces in Confluence? We have found a major security risc in this option. Users get notifications from all subpages in the space even if they are restricted from watching the page.
Hi @Atle Rinvoll
confluence have "autowatch" feature enabled by default.
You can turn "autowath" on or off and also configure other notification settings
refer below link
hope it will help you
I have autowatch disabled, but I want to prevent watching of spaces. Pages and stuff is ok, but watching spaces is a security hazard for us, and it is not possible for administrators to remove watchers of spaces. It is only possible to remove watchers of pages. I had to do som DB operations to get rid og the space watchers.
So my question is, is it possible to disable the ability to watch spaces?
So I will have to ask the support for a good way to solve this to prevent mails with sensitive content to send to all space watchers.
Did you thought about removing space watchers in special spaces by script or e.g. database trigger?
This could be my last chance instead of loosing confidence of the users to the system.
