Hey everyone, we have a requirement to set our Quick Search to only search through a single space, we host over 4 spaces and would prefer to have it go through a 'chosen' space rather than 2 or 3 or all. Any help would be really appreciated :smile:. We are running on Confluence Cloud. I went through the Documentation but could not really find the answer.
In that case, is there some sort of permission set I could apply so that when users outside of the organization search for a page, they only see results from a particular Space rather than all spaces in the organization.
This confluence cloud help page [https://confluence.atlassian.com/confcloud/search-724765412.html] says that:
"Confluence shows a maximum of 3 administrative items, 6 pages and/or blog posts, 2 attachments, 3 people and 2 spaces".
I am fine with this, but I just would like the quick search results to fetch pages from 1 space. I would appreciate some light on this :smile:.
@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ Why would you make the assumption that "that defeats the purpose of what it is there to do." Its a perfectly valid use case to focus search to just one space. For those that want to search across all spaces they can always go to advanced search, right? Default can still be all spaces.
My "assumption" is based on the documentation and design when I've talked to Atlassian people about improving searches and doing them differently. The purpose of the quick search is to search the whole of Confluence (and, in fact, should be extended to search all linked applications as well!).
If you want to search just one space, put it into the search term, or put a "livesearch" macro on a page and limit that to the space.
