We have recently started using Confluence and one of the selling points was the search engine.
We thought we could type a buzzword into the search bar, and every page or document with that buzzword that we've stored in Confluence would pop up in the dropdown.
Is there a way to make this happen? I've played around with labels but can't seem to make anything work.
Grateful for any help!
@Stephanie_Bailey Welcome to the Atlassian community
Search will find words in pages, in page labels, in attachment names, etc. It will not search attachment content.
Here are some helpful links about search and search syntax.
What you are explaining above should work. If you give a more specific example and how it is failing I can provide additional assistance.
Hey, I'm still having trouble. I've added labels to the bottom of the page and when I type that label in the search bar the page still doesn't show.
Am I right in thinking if the word is in the content of a page, that page should appear in the search bar options if I type that word in?
@Stephanie_Bailey Yes words in the page title and page content should bring the page up in search. Those words should also provide recommendations on a request in the summary field. The only way they would not show is if you have page restrictions applied to the page.
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.
With this technology it is possible to connect other data sources and applications (websites, Jira, Sharepoint, file shares, and many more).
With one search query in Confluence, all connected sources can be searched.
Additional to the search ui, you can place also a result list and searchbar on a Confluence site - with the iFinder Search Macro (part of iFinder Confluence Search).
