How to search within results?

I'd like to either be able to search w/in the results of the previous search or enter a search string in such a way that successive search parameters apply only to the results of the sum of the previous parameters in the search string

Hi  @Michael L Bishop 

if you interested on a high qualtiy search solution for Confluence, iFinder Confluence Search is available at Atlassian Marketplace.

It helps even the confluence user without expert knowledge to search quite intuitively.

This enterprise search solution delivers top results based on linguistic analysis and offers many additional features.  

These articles may help you:

Let me know, if you need further information or like to get a demo first.



Thank you, Robby; I'll take a look at those articles.  After being away from a large information database for a couple years, I've accessed it only to find out that Confluence appears to be their default interface for locating documents.  (I tried to retire, but I was talked into coming back part time; oh well.)

Hi @Michael L Bishop 

Welcome to Community! Search in confluence isn't that advanced by default. There maybe an app available in the marketplace but not that I know of


The best way I have found to search is to filter my search results down to the space you want to search or author and then search for what you are looking for

Alternatively you can tag pages with labels etc to make them a bit more searchable, but that doesnt' always work


If you are determining whether to go cloud or data center as server is eol in 2024 and search is important I would recommend looking into cloud



Thank you, Clark.  I'm new to Confluence and still trying to get a better understanding of how it works
