How to hide watch-button on versioned pages?

Hi there

I'v just updated Confluence to Version 5.9.5. Now i have a lot of Log-entries like '[http-apr-18092-exec-6] [common.error.jersey.ThrowableExceptionMapper] toResponse Uncaught exception thrown by REST service: null'

On the next line, there is the URL to the used page and the URL to the taken Action, example:

-- referer: /confluence/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=430702879 | url: /confluence/rest/watch-button/1.0/watchState/430702879 | userName: .....'

I've tested this. Every time a user klicks on the 'watch-button' on a versioned page, the log gets an entry like above.

My Question: how can i hide the watch-button on all versioned pages?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Roman,

There's a bug already fixed for this issue:

In this case you'll need to upgrade Confluence to 5.10.0 or newer in order to fix the problem.


I hope it helps! smile
