Hey there,

Occasionally the Confluence search index needs to be rebuilt after an upgrade. This is a quick process to initiate:


  1. Go to  > General Configuration > Content Indexing
  2. Select Rebuild and follow the prompts to confirm you want to rebuild the index. 

Give that a shot if you test upgrading again. It's also possible, but somewhat less likely, that you may need to manually rebuild the search index. If using the Rebuild button in Confluence's web interface still doesn't help after the rebuild job is complete, you can follow the steps in How to Rebuild the Content Indexes From Scratch on Confluence Server .

No, not working! search is not working in 7.15 even after complete reindex

Ah ok, If you are using Starter confluence license, you might not be able to do that. In that case, hopefully someone from the Community Support Engineers can help to raise a bug for you.
