Purpose

Whenever an attachment in a page are added, updated or deleted, each action will generate a email notification to the watchers. If the page involves many attachments, watchers will received unwanted notification storm and noise.

Workaround

  • Currently it's not possible to disable the notifcation via UI. This particular feature request was tracked here.

To workaround this, we would have to disable file-content-update-notification and file-content-delete-notification in System Add-on.

  • Go to  > Add Ons
  • Select All Add-Ons From the Drop Down List
  • Search for Confluence File Notifications
  • Expand the modules
  • Disable file-content-update-notification & file-content-delete-notification
