Is there a way to change the default settings when creating a new user?

I'm looking for a way to change the default settings for new users. I'd like to

  • change the e-mail notification settings (so our companys recommendation is preset for new users)
  • preset page/space watches for new users
  • preset some favourites for new users

Does anyone know how this could be done without having to create a new user, then logging in as this new user and configuring the required settings?

Hi Anne,

This document may help you: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/changing-the-user-default-settings-444107050.html

Is explains a little bit how to change the user default settings.

Hope it helps!

If you need any further help, please let us know!

Kind regards,

HI Diego, unfortunately this is about JIRA, not Confluence. Br, Anne

We have the same issue here with Confluence 5.7.
There doesn't seem to be a way of doing such a modification through the UI.
 And we are reluctant to edit the source code (if we would find the suitable lines ...)
