Problem with search Confluence

I want to ask about the confluence search, some pages after they are created do not appear in the search, and some old pages are not to be. I re-index the search, and nothing has changed, may suggest what could be the problem here, or where to look?

Hey Bobby, did you try to rebuilt the index file from scratch?



1. Stop Confluence.
2. Delete the following folders from the home directory if they exist:
* <confluence-home>/index/
* <confluence-home>/journal/
3. Start Confluence.
4. Go to *General Configuration* page.
5. Search for the *Content Indexing* option in the left side bar.
5. Click on *Rebuild*.

Those. then to find the confluence of the page will appear which have not been? And to do that every time, when you create a new page? Or what does it depend?

You don't need to it that all the time. The index file probably got corrupted and triggered your problems. Please, monitor your instance if you are still having problems, open a ticket at

If this method can not, there is still some way to rebuild the index?

I have same problem. confluence can not find some pages even when I search with page title and dear Guilherme Viana I have done your suggestion so nothing changed. is this Lucene engine problem?  

Does anyone know the time between publishing a page in confluence and then it showing on the confluence search?


I mean how much time does it take to index automatically in confluence?
