Notification on content of "Include Page"

Is there a way to issue notifications on a page which includes content from another page via the "Include Page" macro if the included content changes?

Yes. Just add yourself as a watcher on the source page(s).

So if the consumers of my page want to subscribe to changes, they will have to navigate to each embedded page to subscribe to it? Is there any other way to support this process?

Hi Henning,

No, there isn't.  If you want to know when a change is made to a page you have to watch that page. 

Confluence renders the Include Page macro at runtime and has no way of knowing if the content of that macro has changed since the last time it rendered the page.
