Can Confluence search PDF Contents

Can Confluence search PDF Contents. Is there a way to change or customize what confluence searchs? We need to be able to search contents of attached PDF doc? Content option by space does not work

Yes, Confluence will index and search the contents of certain types of attachments (including PDF). For more details, please see...

Searching the content of attachments

Indexing happens every 60 seconds by defualt so it may take a moment for the PDF to be searchable after being added.

The URL gets 404 error loops back to this record

Sorry about that, link should be fixed now.

Oops, sorry abou that...the link should be fixed now :)

that did not answer my specific question, just a canned response isn't good enough

Does the cloud version provide indexing ?

Hi Anthony,

yes, it should. Do you have any problems with indexing your content?
