Customizing of search results ranking?

Hi,

is it possible to customize the ranking of search results in Confluence, e. g. to change the Weighting of Content Types?

Best regards,

S. Waldschmidt

Unfortunately there is no such possibility in Confluence administration. A similar feature request is still open: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-15619

You have to write a plugin that provides a lucene-boosting-strategy module: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CONFDEV/Lucene+Boosting+Strategy+Module

There is a feature request for adjusting search ranking: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-15619 You may want to add a comment there.

By using an external search appliance integrated (indexing your Confluence data), you can get finer control on your weighting and search content algorithms.

The way I look at it, Confluence is a wiki and really good at that. Really really good.

Atlassian does not also try to be a Search Appliance corp - to which there are numerous whole companies dedicated to that problem in and of itself.

AppFusions has worked on a few solutions in this area - contact us at info[at]appfusions[dot]com for more info, if interested.
