Searching for IP Addresses

I have a fresh installation of Confluence -- and I've thrown some pages together for testing. I'm having problems searching for IP addresses... Any tips?  or does it just not do that?  My hope was that I could search for the first two octets of an IPV4 Address  (i.e. 192 168 ) and have it bring up data in pages with 192.168

Thanks in advance,

It is possible ... just not pretty. You can do it with a regex search like below.


It does not work very well either. Here is an example from our Confluence. I have navigated to our IP Plan and that page is not one of the 10 pages that comes up in the search. Screenshot 2023-11-06 143455.png


Do you know if someone has asked for an improvement or fix on this? Not being able to search for IPs in such a well-known and widely used service as Confluence is surprissing!

One thing I found was I am able to find IPs by searching for the first two octets like this:



It won't work to find the last two octets, but it's something!  It's cool to know that regex would work, but that'd be a real stretch for some of the people to do each time.  Thanks for the suggestion though!


I just came across the same issue, although I found I would get a hit if the (full) IP I was searching for didn't have the protocol in front, ie:

If the IP is part of a path, ie:

The search wouldn't find it either.

Thanks for the tips on searching with wildcard and regex though!
