Good evening, I'm using a page/blog post field in Confiforms to return a page match from a page tree within my space key. The strange thing is that this works "sometimes". I've set the macro to only search for pages within my Confluence spacekey. When I type in a key word it sometimes returns a result. Other keywords return nothing even though they're clearly part of the title of the page. Not sure if this is a known bug or if it's something I'm doing wrong. let me know!

ConfiForms uses Confluence REST APIs to search for pages. And that in turn relies on up-to-date search index.
It might be that the index went out sync. You can easily check if this is the case - try to search for the same term in Confluence search bar - do you get results you expect?
I believe you are correct. This morning my search was performing correctly. I'm assuming that page indexing on our end isn't "instantaneous"
Pages that I deleted today were still searchable after I deleted them. Looks like I need to chat with our dev team but at least I have an answer to what's been going on. Thanks for the quick reply!
The "search" in Confluence uses index and that is asynchronously built
On a very busy installations (even though it is an incremental procedure and usually is quick) it can take time. Especially on instances with high volume of concurrent updates (to pages/blogposts).
Atlassian can share more insights, but this is what I know from my 8+ years of app development and support of Confluence/Jira
