Search box not working in Confluence


I am the administrator of our Enterprise Confluence wiki and need your assistance.

The issue our users are facing is they are unable to search for existing, unrestricted pages/contents.

E.g. There is an unrestricted child page called Librarian, the Confluence space permissions are set appropriately with view permissions to the group members and the anonymous group.

Can you help?

This one was resolved by rebuilding the index.

Is the "Librarian" page a root-level page in your space? Or is it a child page of a page that possibly has restrictions that might prevent searching?

Hello Neal,

The Confluence space is unrestricted to the Confluence users, except the anonymous users. I was informed by Peter Koczan from Atlassian that it should be possibly due to the failed content indices. I will rebuild the failed content indices and update this post.

Thank you,


Rahul Savaikar
