I really like the batched notifications which were coming with 5.10 (?) - that really reduced the number of E-Mails for watchers. It seems like adding or removing attachments still create notifications 1 by 1 - is this correct?
Is there a way to control, if watchers are notified when adding / removing attachments at all?
Hi there, Jan - You are correct, adding and removing attachments does generate notifications:
Whenever an attachment in a page are added, updated or deleted, each action will generate a email notification to the watchers. If the page involves many attachments, watchers will received unwanted notification storm and noise.
There is a way to disable notifications for adding/removing attachments: How To Disable Notifications For Attachments Action
Go to > Add Ons
Select All Add-Ons From the Drop Down List
Search for Confluence File Notifications
Expand the modules
Disable file-content-update-notification & file-content-delete-notification
I hope this is a good workaround for your team.
Even though this thread pretty old, the ideal situation would be include the attachments updated events in batched notifications rather than disabling these completely. @AnnWorley , has any work been done with this in mind? I couldn't find an issue in the Jira bug tracker.
