How to search in child pages from parent page

From ParentPage I have have hierarchy of two levels. These are for tracking inventory. All the child pages(leaf) contain a table with device and username (@xyz). I want to have a method to search if one particular user is using any of the devices in child pages.

Inventory(Parent)--> Type of Device(1st level childpage)-->ListOfDevices&Users(2ndlevel childpage).

Hi @Praveen V - don't know if I'm getting you right - did you check out the Page Tree Search Macro

This should work out perfect - put it on Parent Page and search for user. It's set automatically on parent page as root page. 

Page Tree Search Macro is just returning Child Pages if search keywords are matching with Page name

Its working if I give exact userId. But not with @User.

Hi @Praveen V - did you try setting the filter 'Mentioning User' after the first result?

This should give the wanted result
