Hi Gary,

This feature is only available to Space Admins and Sys Admins

Regards,

@Gary Mason Can you request being a space admin based on justifications you may have for your purpose(s)? We have about 200 spaces and quite a few of them have multiple space admins, not all of them are doing 'core space admin activity'.

Thanks both.  I thought I'd missed something but it seems not.  I don't think I'll get space admin access anytime soon.  I can't think of a reason why the owner of a page shouldn't be able to see who's watching it but it looks like a "feature" I'll have to live with.

It would be a good idea - I agree - to allow others to view who is watching a page. Currently the screen that comes up that allows one to view who is watching a page (and that space) also comes with the ability to add watchers to the page (and add watchers to a space too, in one of Confluence Server's recent updates). For now, those are privileges provided to the space admin, but an unbundling of 'view' and 'add' to allow any user to view watchers certainly seems apropos.

Some teams like the ability to be able to 'force-watch' users to ensure they are engaged in the content, so I think that is a good feature.

Like Symantha Gates likes this

as a workaround consider @mentions and tasks. but viewing watchers is a bit of a privacy breach. some people might not want regular users to see that they are watching. so i think it makes sense that only sys admins have that access. although for sys admins, I'd put that feature somewhere in the menu..

Atlassian Jira Service desk allows users to add and see ticket watchers.  Privacy?

@Khalid Darwish "Privacy": Indeed! Even if that was the case Atlassian should leave that decision in the admins hands. AT least give them the option to allow "regular" users to see who is watching their pages. Otherwise, they will feel they are talking to a wall.

This doesn't seem to be completely accurate. I am the space admin for my PERSONAL space in confluence and I still see nothing in space tools that looks like "Manage Watchers".

Shouldn't I be able to do that in my personal space?
