Search for text embedded in a web link (content search) in a confluence page

Aswini Vayyala May 15, 2017


I am able to get content search results when the link is added as text within the page.

eg: cql=space=test and text~""

But if the same link is embedded as link text in the web link of the page, the above CQL does not work. Is there a way to search the embedded content especially web link text?

The links are not searchable within Confluence. If you only need to identify the links once for a project, please consider exporting the instance to XML and then using a text editor to find the links as described in How Do I replace all 'hard' links to my old Base URL.
