Notification When Someone Views the Wiki

Hello all,

Is there a way to receive notifications when someone views certian pages in the wiki, and also who it is that viewed that specific page.

I would appreciate the help.

Thank you.

My approach would be to enable user access logging, then write a shellscript or some other mechanism that can be automated to monitor that logfile and based on specific events (e.g. page visit), trigger a notification.

This way you would not consume too much resources and can customize the mechanism the way you want.

Thank you. Exactly what I needed.

Mmm, Confluence doesn't track that by default. If it did, it could be quite a heavy load, and the usual trick is for people to include javascript that will post the visitor data to other tools that are designed for view tracking (e.g. Google Analytics). Even they don't mail on view though - you'll need dedicated code for that sort of thing!

Thanks Nic,

So I assume there is no plugin or macro which Confluence offers that can accomplish this task?

Thank you.
