How to watch the new Atlassian Community site via an RSS feed or *useful* emails?

The old Answers site worked great with RSS, so I could easily keep my eyes on the topics interesting for me using a good old feed reader. Worked great.

Now, it seems all I have is the Watch feature which sends me rather useless notficiations: 

  1. Subject contains zero info, just "New question available in Confluence" so I'm supposed to open hundreds of mails?!
  2. The actual content of the question or the answer is not in the email. 

Am I missing something?

As mentioned in the Community release notes - May 23, 2017, we've introduced a new way to watch content via RSS feeds! Located inside of the watch button, you can tab over to the RSS feeds and copy the desired feeds straight to your clipboard.

How do you get the rss feed link for a particular product only? 

I'll assume it's not possible to get rss feed for a tag, seeing as you cannot watch a tag.

That's an exellent suggestion. We'll look into making those rss feeds easily discoverable but for now here are are few examples:

Thank you Bruce. I spent quite a while try to hand-craft the the right url, in the absence of any links... but obviously I was missing the correct queryparam-fu.

Thanks, Bryce! I managed to get what I wanted.

I accepted this thread, as I couldn't accept your comment as answer.

Hi Aron,

you can get an rss feed with this URL:

If you look at the community page with a RSS feed reader, you get even more feeds.

That appears to be the whole site, not by tag

@MattS, this URL structure should work for tags:

The current limitation I'm finding is that it doesn't work for tags with spaces.

My mistake - the community forum is running Lithium, so the answer below doesn't apply. The developer forum is on Discourse.

Partially related to this, is the ability to watch for certain keywords in any post (regardless of category) e.g. reference to an add-on name.

This feature is currently not available; however, it has been added to the future roadmap for Discourse. The more votes or comments for this feature the more likely it is to be developed. 

In some of the other forums I use on this same platform, the RSS Feed Subscription natively appears in search results as an advanced option.

It looks like it just hasn't been exposed or built back into this highly customized implementation. Hopefully we'll see it soon.

@Aron Gombas [Midori]  A search will surface Tags, so this would natively work to get you the same result.

Great point DeAnna.. those URLs look like this:

We are currently exploring the best way to expose this on the front-end
