Search on metadata


I m searching for a solution in Confluence to search in metadata. E.g. we enter a publishing date in a custom field (e.g. scaffolding plugin?) - not the Confluence create or last editing date - and need to search over a date range.

We also need to search over specific labels - search only in labels is not available in the Confluence search interface.

Please help - any ideas?

Thank you

Just a thought: Could you try a combination of a page properties macro (for your publishing date) and a search macro restricted to specific labels of a page...

Yes, this could be the right way. But how can I search in page properties? I would like to filter - e.g. search content witch have dates (entered with the page properties macro) in a specific timerange. As far as I can see there are only reports possible - but no way to search filtered by the properties.

You can search for labels like this:
