How to stop users being automatically added as page watchers when submitting a ConfiForm?


I have created a ConfiForm in Confluence, however, every time someone submits the form, it automatically adds them as a page watcher. This means every time another user submits a form, they get notified. We have used ConfiForms before on other pages and have not come across this issue before and I can't figure out what's different this time. Is anyone able to help explain why this is happening and how we can stop users automatically being added as watchers after submitting?

Thank you!

Hi @Chloe P  and welcome to this Atlassian community

I believe that your form has a file/attachment field, right? The way Confluence works by default is it adds a user who has uploaded an attachment as a page watcher

Good news is that you can "fix that" - Add the following ConfiForms IFTTT macro to your form

And set it in a way that the 

  • "Page watchers to remove" parameter has a value [entry._user]


Hi @Alex Medved _ConfiForms_ thank you!
