Victor, if you are running your own server you may add the Livesearch Macro to the space sidebar using the wiki markup example toward the bottom of this page: Livesearch Macro
You would go to Space Tools>Look and Feel>Sidebar, Header and Footer to add the macro to the sidebar.
What I don't understand is that this use to be an option for a space admin, to restrict search to the current wiki space instead of defaulting to a global search. Why did Atlassian remove this option from Confluence?
Telling people to add YASF (Yet Another Search Field) to the pages, just confuses most end users and adds unnecessary elements to the UI.
There is also a live search macro that you can add to a page which you can set to only search the current space. The problem is that it lives on the page so if you want it to appear on every page you would need to add it to every page. The other option would be to have a custom theme where you can add this macro to the left navigation or somewhere else on the UI.
If you have admin rights and the markdown macro installed on confluence cloud, put this in the "space tools" -> "look and Feel" ->Header box
AJS.$("#quick-search fieldset").append(AJS.$('<input type="hidden" name="searchQuery.spaceKey" value="YOURSPACENAME" />'));
Substitute YOURSPACENAME with you space name
For an end user in case there is no macro to limit search within the space.
This is how you would do it (using the cloud edition). Click in the search field and press <enter> or select "Confluence Advanced Search". In this view you can use space as search filter.
Phew, Atlassian Team 2021 blew by. With dozens of demos and a handful of keynotes, you may have missed some of the awesome Confluence Cloud sessions. Don't' worry, you can watch them all here or on Y...
