How to change the email notifications to remove content?

Does anyone have insight into editing email notification templates in /confluence/WEB-INF/atlassian-bundled-plugins/confluence-email-notifications-plugin-x.x.jar? I have been following the instructions here https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/customising-the-email-templates-168001822.html on Confluence 5.5.2, and have searched other forum queries on this topic (one suggesting that “it doesn’t work”).

My goal is to remove the actual content portion of the appropriate SOY file so that when somebody has a watch on a page, they receive a change notification, but the actual content excerpt of the page is not included in the notification. I don’t want users to see what was edited, and I don’t want them to see the excerpt of the original content either. I want to remove that entire “content” box. While I want users to get a notification, for security reasons, I don’t want them to see the content outside the wiki. A user will have to navigate to the wiki page to see the actual content and changes made.

So far I’ve edited the following SOY files, but have not found the desired results:

  • templates/notification/content-added-1.0.0.soy
  • templates/content/content-excerpt-pattern-2.0.0.soy
  • templates/notification/status-updated-1.0.0.soy
  • templates/notification/page-edited-2.0.0.soy
  • templates/notification/page-edit-1.0.0.soy

Much thanks,

Chris

Hello Chris,

did you find solution? If yes, could you share it with us?

Many thanks,

Hi Michal,

In confluence-email-notifications-plugin-6.1.21.jar, the file is located In templates/notification/page-edit-1.0.0.soy. The code in bold was added to put some user-friendly text in the blank spot, otherwise we got an error message appearing. Can’t remember what it was.

Hope this helps.

Disclaimer 2: Please read Atlassian’s red-box warning about editing this JAR file here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/customising-the-email-templates-168001822.html. Ie. They do not support it. Please back up the JAR file before making edits to the SOY file.

Chris
