Shortcut for Advanced Search?

Is there a shortcut for Advanced Search?  I know GG gets the search to open but I want a shortcut to go straight to Advanced.

Hi Rita,

Unfortunately, this is not possible.

What were you looking to configure exactly in the Advanced Search? We have a feature request for being able to configure Quick Search:

If that's not what you're looking to do, please you describe what you need from Quick Search and I can see if we have a request for it.


Hi Shannon,

I guess Rita's requirement is similar to what I was looking for today. Here it is

  1. When we press '/', quick search opens, which has the Advanced Search option just below the quick search bar but we have to reach for it 
  2. When we press 'u' we get the last used JQL query and the Advanced Search option is just to the right of it but we have to reach for it

What we need is a shortcut to get the what we get by clicking on "Advanced Search" at both these places.




Hello Nikhil,

The shortcut to search is 'gg' as @Rita Carnes mentioned, but it does not take you to the full/advanced search.

There was a feature request in the past to implement what you are asking. We had a request for it in the past, but it has been closed as we do not have plans to implement it in the near future:

If there's a specific search you want to save, I would recommend using the Search Results Macro on a page to display that information.

Let me know if you have any further questions about that.



Hello Shannon,

Thanks for your quick response!

In place of 'gg', we can use the more convenient '.' but yes, it does not take to the advanced search, it just lets us search in the context of the current page. It is only much relevant in case of a single ticket.

I would also not delve much into Search Results macro as I can that this feature is doing to be shelved in some time.

I guess your reply is related to Confluence while my query was related to JIRA.

Could you please answer this in context of JIRA for me?





Thank you for your follow-up. Yes, this question is related to Confluence, so the information here only pertains to that.

I am only as familiar with Confluence, so if you want to know about the search in Jira, I would recommend raising a question in the Jira collection if you're still having any issues. There, one of our Jira experts will be able to help you.

Let me know if you have any trouble!



Hello @Shannon Spaniol,

I figured out a more efficient way to reach Advance Search:

1. Press 'g' then 'i' - You will reach the issue search page

2. Press 'f' - Cursor will reach the place where you can write your JQL


Please upvote if this makes sense.





That's great, thank you for sharing! It might not be seen by our Jira users here in this Confluence collection, but it still might help someone in the future.
