Atlassian Community Hero Image Collage for Confluence sends notifications each time a file is saved - any way to deactivate this?

We're evaluating for Confluence and our users get a lot of notifications - whenever a file is saved, the watchers of the according page get a notification - is there any way to deactivate these notifications?

We want to notify users/watchers when the page containing the diagram is saved after editing, but not each time a diagram within the page is saved (users are saving their work several times before exiting

It's impossible to do it currently. We are blocked by a Confluence bug which was reported a while back.

You could help by voting on the ticket.

Thanks for your feedback. The JIRA bug above definitely needs some promotion, as it makes either watch notifications useless for pages using, or - if we do not deactivate watches completely - such a potential 'spamming tool', that we'll have to deactivate it. I hope, Atlassian won't continue ignoring it...

Boris - any news from Atlassian on this? We're using Confluence Cloud and are having the same spamming of our users as we save objects. The workaround mentioned on this thread appears to only apply to server instances of Confluence, not cloud.

Cloud is different to server technically. Could I ask please that you start a new thread with details of the problem and link us to it? Thanks.

Done. I've posted here.

  • for Confluence Plugin
  • Confluence 6.0.3

A user posted a possible workaround.  It involves disabling modules of a system plugin.

There is also a feature request to integrate attachment update notifications into the bulk notification feature of Confluence 6.0:

This ticket should receive votes too.
