Relative Date Queries with Confluence

I'm trying to run a Confluence query with a relative date. Specifically I want to fetch documents created within the last X days (from the search field within Confluence).

What works is this:

created:[20150311 TO 20150317]
created:[20150311 TO NOW]

But what I would like to run is something like this:

created:[NOW-7DAY TO NOW]
created:[StartOfWeek TO NOW]

I already tried without success some formats with inspiration from and the fact the the keyword "NOW" is supported makes me think that there is a solution to my problem. But I cannot find any documentation on this topic.

Is there documentation on the syntax of relative date range queries with Confluence? Or is this not supported?

Hi Robert,

CQL supports this, but it's not yet fully supported in the interface.  If you are running Confluence Cloud, I wrote an add-on to expose it in the interface:

Otherwise, I'm afraid you're stuck with the syntax that worked for you above, at least until Atlassian implements it in the interface for all users (or I get around to writing a Confluence Server version of the add-on).

However, don't forget that you can limit your search with the options on the left side of the screen from the search page (unfortunately, it only works for last modified).

Hi Stephen, thank you very much! Robert
