Search only in children pages

I'm building a page with a gigantic collection of user research results. My colleagues would need a way to search contents only in the children of that page, filtering by tags if possible. 

Is it possible in Confluence?



1 - the desired solution would be a main page with tag filters. By selecting one or many tags, in the same page a list of links is displayed with all children pages marked with that combination of tags.

2 - the simplest solution I imagine would be a search box where I write ''XYZ'' then shows me all the children pages that have ''XYZ'' in the text.

Use the Page Tree Search macro.

We have a Search in Child/Descendents/Space feature in Canned Search for Confluence

Search by Title in Children.gif

You can use more complicated custom CQL with the CQL Search Macro 

or CQL Search Table Macro.


We wrote a KB article (How to search within a group of pages). Hope it will be helpful.
