I'm facing an issue that I don't know how to deal with
My advanced search bar (top right. Not the internal for specific space) is applying a result that I'm not want to be exposed to users at this point
Do the results are the internal caching of the Confluence app?
I checked the cache management webpage, but I don't know which tab is relevant?
I assume that it's not part of the caching storage of the browser I'm using

just to make sure we're on the same page:
The result of a global search you are executing is displaying a page/blog/file, which is not supposed to be displayed for the user executing the search.
We're using Confluence for several years & I never encountered this behavior.
Are you sure that the logged in used executing the search:
* Does NOT have permission to view the space
* The space is NOT visible to anonymous users
or, if the space is viewable for the user
* The page is restricted, so that the user cannot view the page
* If an attachment is displayed in the search result, the page containing the attachment is restricted
Please check this & give some more information, if the issue still persists.
Hi @JP _AC Bielefeld Leader_
Thank you for your quick response
we are actually looking for a different solution. The spaces that we have are public and available to anonymous users.
We would like to control the search results so that specific spaces will not be displayed, and especially first in the list.
Is there any way to control the search results?
so you want to hide search results from specific spaces that the users are allowed to view. My guess is, that this is not possible using the global search. As long as a user can view the content, it will be searchable & shown in the search results. You also cannot control the order of the search results. As this is a Lucence based search (Apache Lucene Project), which is a sort of fulltext search like google, the results are sorted be occurrence of the search terms, while the page title is weighted more than the page body.
disabling the global search in Confluence ... I see two ways to get this done:
1. Use some custom global css to hide the searchbox.
2. Use the HideElements marco from https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1211757/hideelements-for-confluence?hosting=server&tab=overview
(Free App) This allows for a more fine-grained control, but has to be done on every page.
Hey there, folks! For most of us, the past six months- yes, you read that right- have been a journey. More people than ever before have pivoted to working remotely, and navigating being on-scre...
