Does anyone know what content Confluence indexes?

I'm creating documentation on how to search for content in Confluence, and I'd like to tell our employees what content Confluence actually indexes.

Attempt at answering my own question...

Content =

* pages

* blog posts

* comments

* attachments

* status updates

* profiles

* space descriptions

For this content, text and titles (where relevant) are indexed.


Do any of the following help?

"When you perform a full search, Confluence will search all content in all spaces (site and personal), mail, personal profiles, attachments and the space description."

While this documentation provides some relevant information, I think it's a bit lacking in specifics. What is considered "all content"? For example, are macro names and values searched. (I believe the answer to this is no.)

Your list covers everything I believe. I don't think it searches macro names as that is not 'content' (or the maker of content) as such. I could be wrong though.
