      Problem Definition

      The space owner, cannot manager users watching all blog posts in their space.

      Space owner can only manage watchers of specific pages/blog posts in that space.

      Many users only watch the blog for keeping up with the news in the space and not the actual content.

      We have a JIRA space in our Confluence instance. This space contains all system and operational documentation of our JIRA instance. Information not so interesting to the organization. However, the blog in the JIRA space is used for information about upgrades, new features, downtime etc. This is very interesting to the users. Therefore the users only watch the blog of the space and not the space itself. 

      Suggested Solution

      Add the ability for the space owner to manage all blog watchers.


      Atlassian Status as of November 2018

      Hi all,

      Thank you for all voting and commenting on this feature.

      We fully understand and appreciate the need to manage blog watchers. As you’ll be aware, within Confluence we already have the ability to manage page watchers – managing blog watchers is the logical next step.

      This is something we’d ideally like to implement in the future, but it's not currently on our roadmap for the next 12 months. We’re instead focusing on bringing you a new search experience, and are investigating improvements to permissions.

      For more context on this, take a read of the Community blog: A renewed approach to highly voted Server suggestions for Jira and Confluence.

      In the meantime, we suggest taking a look at the Better Blogs for Confluence add-on.

      Jenny Millman | Product Manager - Confluence Server
