Is there a way to filter the Left hand navigation in confluence, and search for an occurrence of a w

I would like to know if you can filter the left hand nav in Confluence to search for the occurence in any of the page names, and you are left with only the links that have the word. Instead of just searching Confluence using the search bar

Hello @ekbates-imperva,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to have you!

You would be able to do this with the Livesearch Macro. It allows you dynamically search within a page and can also be attached to the sidebar using the markup mentioned in the article:   

Wiki markup example

This example is useful when you want to add a macro outside the editor, for example as custom content in the sidebar, header or footer of a space.

Macro name: livesearch

Macro body: None.

{livesearch:spaceKey=DOC|size=large|placeholder=Search this space}

Note that it won't filter out the page tree as you might expect, but it will still obtain the results you require.

Let me know if you have any trouble.
