Hi @Sonja Schelbach

Search using wildcards

Wildcards replace one or more characters in your search. They can help expand your search. For example, the search below would find or


Confluence doesn't support leading wildcards. This means searching for *heese will not return cheese. 

Wildcard Description Example

Multiple characters

Use an asterisk (*) at the end of your word to replace multiple characters.

print* finds content containing 'printer', 'printing', 'prints' and so on.

Multiple wildcards

Use asterisks (*) to add more than one multiple-character wildcard

r*c* finds content containing 'react', 'recovery', 'refactor' and so on.

Single character

Use a question mark (?) to replace a single character in your search.

b?tter finds content containing 'butter', 'bitter', 'better', 'batter' and so on.

All the details are here:,of%20words%20of%20each%20other.&text=The%20following%20search%20won't,use%20the%20matched%20phrase%20search.
