Confluence search


We use Confluence server 6.15.10 and we have a problem with a search tool. It can't find a partial match. For example:

I am looking for the 'xx.asdf" entry. I enter "asdf" into the search bar. No matches. And if I enter a full search request, then it's OK.

What can be done in this case? It looks like a problem with the CONTAINS operator.

If you interested on a high qualtiy search solution for Confluence, iFinder Confluence Search is available at Atlassian Marketplace. It helps even the confluence user without expert knowledge to search quite intuitively.

Our article in the Atlassian community will give you more information. 

It is available for Confluence Server and Datacenter edition.

Best regards
