My name is Kate, I'm a technical writer and 80% of my time I spend in Confluence (server version 6.9).
All my colleagues use global (or advanced) search in Confluence. You can see this field in the right corner of a top navigation bar. But there is a problem - this advanced search shows you EVERYTHING, but not exactly what you are looking for :)
So here is my question - has anyone tried to configure this global search? For example, I would like to exclude some spaces and all attachments from global search. Maybe it's even possible to configure filters in a global search page? For example, you go to the global search page and some filters have been already chosen by default.
