How to limit search to the current subfolder

Gasan Guseinov Jun 23, 2014

Hi, Currently confluence can only search in a certain space. But let's say, that space contains multiple subfolders or directories. And I want to search for a certain word only in a directory i currently standing on, rather than in the whole space. Is it possible? If yes, then how?

By directory you mean parent-page?
You can add a Page Tree Search macro to a page that lets you search for content in that page and its children. When you do that search you can see that the raw search syntax for it is

ancestorIds:<pageid> AND <search words>

It's a shame you can't search by ancestorName of course.
