Add page watchers with REST API

Do we have REST API support for Adding watchers for version 6.2.0. Any examples on this?

Hi Dan,

This is not "officially" supported and doesn't appear in the published API documentation. However, there are a couple workarounds:

  1. You can retrieve watchers for a page based on its ID (just tested this on 6.2.1): <your_confluence_url>/json/listwatchers.action?pageId=<pageID> - easy to just pull this up in your browser but remember you will need to provide some auth if you're doing this via script
  2. Robert Krause points out an undocumented API endpoint you can use to modify the list on this previous question

I can get #1 working on mine but #2, does not work. Thanks
