Is it possible to watch pages or blog posts in Confluence by label?

Hi everybody,

i was taking a look on how to watch content in Confluence. I haven't seen any option for watching by label. Is it possible?

the current Confluence documentation does not list an ability to watch content by label, however it does suggest the following:

Using labels and RSS feeds as an alternative to watches
You can use the RSS feed builder to track updates to labelled pages and comments on those pages. Here is an idea for customising your RSS feed by using your own personal label(s). This is useful if you want to track updates to specific pages or blog posts, and you do not want to deal with emails. You can use this method as an alternative to watching pages.

  • Build an RSS feed that returns pages, blog posts and comments labelled with a personal label, such as 'my:feed'.
  • Each time you want to 'watch' a page, just label it with 'my:feed'.
  • All updates and comments will automatically come through your RSS feed.

From here, use the RSS Macro to display the feed content on your page.

More information on watching content can be found at: Confluence Documentation - Watching Content

Information on working with RSS at: Confluence Documentation - Working with RSS

Hope that helps your query!

Thanx a lot

Note that the documentation page for building rss feeds has changed. This is the URL for Confluence 7.11

Watching Labels should be standard. RSS-Feed workaround does not fit. It should be integrated in confluence notification system.
