Don't watch created topic

I’m trying to figure out if there is a config option for the default notification level on a created topic (specifically, I don’t want a user to automatically watch a topic they create). I’m using Discourse as a forum backend and calling the APIs, so I know how I might workaround this in that fashion, but I’d be sad if I missed the config to avoid that. Thanks in advance

There is no option for this, but since you are creating topics through the API, you can accomplish it by setting the parameter auto_track to false when you create the topic.
