Restricted view pages and watching a space - clarification needed

If a user makes themselves a watcher of a space, do they get notifications regarding pages in the space for which they don't have viewing permissions?

A related question - which could be more important, based on the answer to the above - Is there a way to prevent a user from being able to watch a page and/or space?

This widget could not be displayed.

Q1 if they are watching the entire Space but aren't included in the Page View Restrictions, they do not receive notifications about that View Restricted page

Q2 User's can select/deselect what Spaces and/or pages they watch.  So no, you can't prevent them from doing either.

In any case, Confluence is a Knowledge Management System ... knowledge is only knowledge if people know when new knowledge has been created or old knowledge has been edited smile
