I seem to remember seeing somewhere a way to craft a search URL for Confluence that will explain why the results were returned the way that they are. I think it output some JSON showing how the ranking worked out. For the life of me I cannot seem to find the URL again. Anybody know what I am referring to?
I think that this is what you might be looking for: https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/how-do-i-understand-the-ranking-of-confluence-s-search-results-785614686.html
The url that you use on your confluence site is in the first portion of the documentation. http://<your confluence URL>/explain.action?queryString=keywords
This Explain Action URL is super interesting. I noticed, however, it does not include attachments, which are a primary source of unwanted noise in our search results. Does anyone know why it doesn't show rankings for attachments?
I am especially interested in this because the Explain Action URL shows how important the boostByModificationDate component is for pages - but the attachments Confluence returns in the search results are usually quite old.
Please feel free to point me to any other channels/forums where this has been discussed before. Thank you!
