Intelligent search - Searching for space with part of the name in it

I have a space named "DevExchange". When I search for "Dev Exchange", I would like Confluence to return the "DevExchange" space in the results. Since I am introducing a space in my search string and the Confluence space name does not have a space, it does not return the intended result. Is there any way to make the Search more broader and  include use cases like this? Often people add blank space between the words or group them together when searching as it is impossible to remember hundreds of spaces that people create. Is there a way to achieve this? We are on 5.6.6 version.

Hello Sujatha, there is a good discussion about this topic into this thread. The page also verses about the functioning of Confluence search syntax in general, and is a good reference to be reviewed. 

Recently Confluence has been improved with another search method called CQL which is documented in this other location.

Please post to this if you have additional queries. Hope this can get you started in the topic.
