Is it possible to manage watchers dor a space?


For some important spaces, I would like to add watchers. The idea is if anything new is published in those spaces, a list of persons will receive a mail, but, as adminstrator of Confluence, I would like to add myself the users to the space wtacher list.

Thanks for yous answers

There seems to be no way to do this at the moment, see for more information.

Thanks for your answer. Any idea how I could vote for this feature?

Create an account on, log in, and click the Vote button.

Well, I did not see a vote button, but I found a "Add a vote" under "More actions" menu, thanks :) .

You can add youself as a space watcher under Space Admin, Advanced. Anyone else with Space Admin rights should be able to do the same but you can't do it for them.

"you can't do it for them", yes, that is the problem, and it is a suggegestion of a new feature, see the link posted by Azwandi.
