How many people are watching or tracking a topic?

(Bart) #1

I’d be interested to know how many people watch or track a specific topic, but I can’t seem to find that information in the UI. Is there a way to get this data, maybe through a JSON request?

I don’t think we’re exposing this information. If you want that information available via JSON, you’ll have to write a plugin.

It would be indeed very interesting feature.

Can certainly be done via a Data Explorer query of course.

I think it would be interesting not just for admins but for users too.

Thanks for your quick answers guys! I can’t use the Data Explorer as we’re hosted with DiscourseHosting, so I was hoping for a built-in solution :wink:

Wait… why does that stop you from using that plugin? Or is it that DiscourseHosting doesn’t provide that plugin as of yet?

(Bart) #8

Correct, it’s not in the standard hosting package.
